KIDSEX_ALL (B4_X)
Sex of child

KIDSEX_ALL variables are 1-digit variables.

Codes

1 = Male
2 = Female
9 = NIU (not in universe)

Description

KIDSEX _ALL (B4_x) reports the sex of each birth reported by women of childbearing age.

KIDSEX_ALL consists of a set of twenty separate variables, covering the most recent birth (KIDSEX_01) up to the twentieth-most-recent birth (KIDSEX_20) for a female respondent of childbearing age. If KIDSEX_ALL is included in a data extract, all these separate variables are included in a researcher's data file.

For surveys including this question, information for this variable was collected on all births for a woman, up to a maximum of twenty. In many cases, data were hypothetically collected on up to twenty births, but no women in the survey had so many births (e.g., no woman had 19 or 20 births). If, for example, no woman in a survey had 20 births and only blank values were included in the original DHS file, then KIDSEX_20 would not be available for that survey in IPUMS-DHS.

Comparability

Apart from universe differences, KIDSEX_ALL (B4_x) has no comparability problems.

Comparability - Standard DHS

KIDSEX_ALL (B4_x) is included in every phase of the standard DHS questionnaire.
