30. Column P30: Children surviving
Once the total number of children ever born is captured for each woman, ask the question on "number of children still alive".
This question is also only for women aged 12 years or more. Ask the question as follows: "Among the children born alive declared in P29, how many are still alive?"
Write down the corresponding number in Column P30.
This total shall include all the children whether born from the current marriage or from a previous marriage. It must include the number of children living in the household as well as children living elsewhere.
This variable indicates the number of children still surviving.
