For children age 0-17 years ask HL9-HL12A If mother does not live in household:
Has (name's) mother been very sick for at least 3 months in the past 12 months?
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.
Use the definition of 'very sick' from HL8A. Circle the code corresponding to the answer given. The question should be left blank if the mother lives in the household (See HL10).
