DELTRANCARRY_ALL indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, the mother reported being carried to reach the health facility for the child's delivery.

DELTRANCARRY_ALL consists of a set of up to six separate variables, covering the most recent birth (DELTRANCARRY_01) up to the sixth-most-recent birth (i.e., DELTRANCARRY_02, DELTRANCARRY_03, DELTRANCARRY_04, DELTRANCARRY_05, and DELTRANCARRY_06) during the reference period prior to the survey. If DELTRANCARRY_ALL is included in a data extract, all these separate variables are included in a researcher's data file.


DELTRANCARRY_ALL has no comparability problems.
