For women who gave birth in the last three to five years by caesarean (cesarean) section, DELCESRTOLD_ALL indicates whether they were told why the caesarean (cesarean) procedure was performed.

DELCESRTOLD_ALL consists of separate variables, covering the most recent birth (DELCESRTOLD_01) and, in some cases, additional births (potentially, DELCESRTOLD_02, DELCESRTOLD_03, DELCESRTOLD_04, DELCESRTOLD_05, and DELCESRTOLD_06).


DELCESRTOLD_ALL has no comparability problems.
