Codes and Frequencies
HHBIRTHCERTOTH indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, the respondent for the household survey (LINENOHHRESP (HV003)) reported that some other action is needed to register a birth (with the civil authorities). The meaning of "other" depends on the particular actions related to registering a birth specified in a given survey.
The information in HHBIRTHCERTOTH is taken from the household record and applies to regular household members, not temporary visitors. Researchers may wish to exclude visitors using the RESIDENT variable (with visitors coded "2") when women, children, or births are the unit of analysis, and using the HHRESIDENT variable when household members are the unit of analysis.
