Now I would like to ask you some questions about the health of each child under the age of five in your care, who lives with you now.
Now I want to ask you about [name].
In what month and year was [name] born?
Probe: What is his/her birthday?
Ask the mother or caretaker for the child's date of birth. If the month or day contains only one digit, use a zero to fill in the first space: for example, the month of March is coded as 03. If the mother knows the exact birth date, also enter the day of birth. Otherwise, enter 99 in the space for day of birth. It is important to record the child's month and year of birth accurately, especially if the Immunization and Anthropometry modules are included in the survey. Then go on to Q. 4.
