DELREFHW_ALL indicates whether a health worker accompanied the mother when the mother moved from the referring health facility to the health facility where the child's delivery occurred.

DELREFHW_ALL consists of a set of up to six separate variables, covering the most recent birth (DELREFHW_01) up to the sixth-most-recent birth (i.e., DELREFHW_02, DELREFHW_03, DELREFHW_04, DELREFHW_05, and DELREFHW_06) during the reference period prior to the survey. If DELREFHW_ALL is included in a data extract, all these separate variables are included in a researcher's data file.


DELREFHW_ALL has no comparability problems.
