Description

For women who gave birth in the last three to five years, ANCAREHT_ALL (M42B_x) indicates whether her height was measured at least once during antenatal care.

ANCAREHT_ALL consists of separate variables, covering the most recent birth (ANCAREHT_01) and, in some cases, additional births, up to, potentially, the sixth-most-recent birth (i.e., ANCAREHT_02, ANCAREHT_03, ANCAREHT_04, ANCAREHT_05, and ANCAREHT_06). For most surveys, this information on measuring height during pregnancy was collected for only the most recent birth; exceptions are noted in the comparability section.
