Description

DECKIDHCARE (V466) indicates whether the woman can decide by herself to take her child to the doctor when the child is seriously ill.

Unlike several other questions about decision-making that specify which household member primarily makes a decision, DECKIDHCARE is a yes/no question referring only to the woman's decision-making power. The complementary variable DECKIDHEALTH indicates who has the final say on the children's health care.
