Warning: these figures indicate the number of cases found in the data file. They cannot be interpreted as summary statistics of the population of interest.
CHEBMN (MV201) reports the total number of children biologically fathered by the male respondent. The standard question wording asked about "all of the children that are biologically yours, even if they are not legally yours or do not have your last name."
The number reported in CHEBMN is the sum of a series of variables covering the total number of biological sons and daughters who are living with their father, living elsewhere, or who have died (MV202 to MV207).
While the related variable CHEB (V201) for women respondents is top-coded at 20 births, CHEBMN is not so limited, since the man's offspring could have been borne by more than one woman.
