Description

For most countries, the CMC data for the date of the woman's first birth are recorded using the Gregorian calendar. On average, there is a seven to eight year gap between the Ethiopian and Gregorian calendars.

For detailed information about the calculation and interpretation of CMC data about the date of the woman's first birth, see DOB1STKIDCMC (V211).
