28. Live births since January 1st 2012

Q: "Have you/has [the respondent] had any live births during the period from January 1st 2012 until today?"

If the answer to question number 26 ["born alive children"] = "00," this woman has never had any born alive children in her life and as a result, she has not had any living birth since January 1st 2012. Ask the question anyway but under the following form:

Q: "Do you confirm that you have not had any living births since January 1st 2012?"

If the answer is yes, then write down "0" in each one of the small boxes situated opposite of "M" and "F," which symbolize the sex of the children who would have been born alive since January 1st 2012, in the section reserved to the registration of this woman's data.

If the answer is No, meaning that the woman declared having had a living birth since January 1st 2012, ask her the following question:

Q: "Where is this child?"
If it is conformed that this child is born alive since January 1st 2012, then:

Ask her the sex of this child and write down "1" in one of the boxes opposite from "M" or "F" depending on the child's sex.

Remember that there will be a correction regarding the answers given previously for questions 26 and 27; in light of new data, please make any necessary corrections.

If the answer to question number 26 "M" is higher than 0 and/or number 26 "F" is higher than 0, then this woman has already had born alive children in her life; ask her the following question:

122. Columns: A31 and A32: Fertility for females 12 - 50 Years

122b. Column A32: Children surviving

Q: How many of these children are still alive?
Like in column A31 above, this column must be completed for the females aged between 12 to 49 years. What is needed is the number of children still alive among those children born alive since last independence day to a woman aged 12 to 49 years.

Example: Maungo and Mmantsheledi are eligible for A27 to A30 as such the latter is coded 04 and 02 in A 27and 02 and 01 respectively to show that she has 4 male and 2 female children and 2 males and 1 female children respectively. The number of children who are living with Maungo, those not living with her and those dead in columns A28, A29 and A30 respectively add up to those in A27. However all Mmantsheledi's children are not living with her hence codes 00 in question A28. Furthermore Mmantsheledi is eligible for question A31 and A32 as her age is within the range 12 to 49 years and she gave birth to her last child early this year, which means that she has had a birth since Independence Day last year.

Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image

154. Columns A26-A31: Fertility and child survival (females only)
It must be noted that fertility is defined as actual birth performance of a woman.
Questions A26-A29 must be completed for all females aged 12 years and over, regardless of their marital status and their relationship to the head of household. For males of any age and females less than 12 years of age, enter a dash in these columns. For young girls (i.e. 12-15 years old) who are still living at home with their parents, this question may be considered rather personal. Take care how you ask the question.

Questions A30-A31 are only asked of females aged 12 to 49 years old. For others, enter a dash in these columns. The enumerator should always check at all times that the number of children in A26 should be equal to the sum of this in A27, A28, and A29. The enumerator should therefore always crosscheck that these balances before moving on to the next section.

The relevant portion of the sample questionnaire is shown on page 61 for easy reference.

160. Column A30: Children born alive
Q. How many children have been born alive by the respondent since Independence Day 2010?
These columns must be completed for females aged 12 to 49 years. For a female aged 50 or more, enter a dash in each of columns A30 and A31. If the woman has not had a live birth since Independence Day, 2009, enter 00 in these columns. Otherwise enter the number of male and female children born in column A30 under male and female columns respectively.

161. Column A31: Children surviving
Q. How many of these children (born since Independence Day 2010) are still alive?
Like in column A29 above, this column must be completed for the females aged 12 to 49 years. What is needed is the number of children still alive among those children born alive since Independence Day 2009.

Section 7 - Union Status and Fertility

5.76 General
This section is comprised of Question 7.1 - 7.14 and the information is to be completed only for females 14 years or older who are not attending primary or secondary school full-time. Part-time students at these schools as well as students of tertiary institutions are eligible for

[p.57]

answering these questions.
The questions in this section can be seen to be of a very personal nature and you must assure the respondent that this type of information is very crucial to population planning as they provide very useful indicators of family formation and population growth.


5.81 General
Questions 7.6 - 7.14 are related to the number of live born children a woman has had. These questions are to be asked only of women under 65

[p.58]

years old. Some women might tend to exclude children who were born alive but subsequently died. These children are not to be excluded from the count. A live birth is the product of a pregnancy which shows some form of life after expulsion even if it dies a few minutes after.


5.88 Questions 7.13- 7.14, Number of Infant Deaths
These questions relate to the live births occurring in the past twelve months and seek to determine if any and how many of these have died. If none of the children have died, score '00'.

Part B: Characteristics of Individual Household Members


5. Women age 12 years or older
Questions B20 to B30 should be asked only of women aged 12 years or more.


B29-B30. How many are still alive?
Ask the woman for the number of male and female children born since September, 1997 who are still alive. Record in one digit the number of male births still alive in column B29 and female births still alive in column B30.
In the example above, if the child died on 21st June, 1998 you should record "0" in column B29 and "0" in column B30.
Note: You should make sure that you do not leave any columns from B20 to B30 blank for any woman aged 12 years or more. For instance, where a woman has reported having no children ever born alive in column B20, you should record "0" in the appropriate columns but do not leave any of the columns blank.
Before proceeding to the next section, ensure that the total numbers of male or female children still alive and those dead add up the corresponding total numbers of male or female children ever born alive to the woman. If the responses yield inconsistent entries, probe to ascertain the wrong entry.
While probing for this information make sure that the woman does not exclude any of her children who might have died shortly after birth, as long as they were born alive. Furthermore, any of her children who might have died at any other age are to be recorded. However, ensure that still births -- that is, the births which did not show any sign of life -- are not included.

Part B: Characteristics of Individual Household Members


5. Women age 12 years or older
Questions B20 to B30 should be asked only of women aged 12 years or more.


B29-B30. How many are still alive?
Ask the woman for the number of male and female children born since September, 1997 who are still alive. Record in one digit the number of male births still alive in column B29 and female births still alive in column B30.
In the example above, if the child died on 21st June, 1998 you should record "0" in column B29 and "0" in column B30.
Note: You should make sure that you do not leave any columns from B20 to B30 blank for any woman aged 12 years or more. For instance, where a woman has reported having no children ever born alive in column B20, you should record "0" in the appropriate columns but do not leave any of the columns blank.
Before proceeding to the next section, ensure that the total numbers of male or female children still alive and those dead add up the corresponding total numbers of male or female children ever born alive to the woman. If the responses yield inconsistent entries, probe to ascertain the wrong entry.
While probing for this information make sure that the woman does not exclude any of her children who might have died shortly after birth, as long as they were born alive. Furthermore, any of her children who might have died at any other age are to be recorded. However, ensure that still births -- that is, the births which did not show any sign of life -- are not included.

Questions for women only from 12 to 50 years of age
The following questions are extremely important and at the same time very sensitive. Try to obtain accurate answers, formulating the questions clearly and correctly record the answers.
Pay attention to the responses to detect whether there are inconsistencies, because the questions are interrelated.
To identify women who should answer the following questions should check the age stated in P4.

P31. Of your children born alive in the last 12 months, how many of them are still alive?
Read the question, wait for the reply. This question is also related to P30. The interviewee should say, of all children declared in Q30, how many are alive at census date. Write down the number stated in the space provided.
Keep in mind that:

- You must include this question only the children themselves;
-You should not include in this question the children born after August 2, 1997.

The census enumerator must pay close attention when filling this question, because the number obtained in this question may not be superior to the previous question (P30). Can only be equal or lower.
Continuing with the example of P30, but assuming that the male child died. We will have:
Men 1 |0| 2 Women |1|

IV. Information about the Population


5. Fertility
These questions will be asked only of the women who are 15 years old and more, whatever her marital status (single, married, consensual union, widows, or separated).

You should note the total of children born alive that each woman 15 years old and more has had.
* Children born alive: These are the ones that at birth gave some sign of life, even if it was momentary (breathe, cry, move). You should note all of the children born alive, whether they were legitimate, illegitimate or natural, those born within the current marriage or union of the enumerated woman; those born in previous unions or marriages.

Also ask and note:

- How many of your children live in this house?
- How many live elsewhere?
- How many have died?


The sums of these three bits of information should be equal to the total of children born alive that the informant has declared. If it is different, try to determine the cause and correct the error.

In addition ask, what is the month and year of the birth of the last child born alive and if this child is currently alive.

These questions, whenever possible, should be done in private form and of each woman individually. Do not forget to ask these questions even of the unmarried women, even if you can suppose that they have not had children.

5. Only for women who are fifteen years old and more

How many children have you had who were born alive?

5.8 Fertility: for females 12 years and older

You are about to start a new topic so you have to prepare the respondent by informing her that you are now going to ask her questions about children and child bearing. Remember these are questions to be asked of female adults and not for husbands to answer for their wives, except where it is inevitable. Questions on fertility are to be asked only of those females who are 12 years and older and they involve only their own children.

P31: Did you have any Live Birth Since August, 1999?
This question is only asked to females 12-49 years of age. Do not ask this question to females 50 years and older since it will be embarrassing. Shade appropriately. The question is similar to P-29 except that this time we are trying to find out if the female had a live birth in the "last 12 months".

P32 Of the Children Born to you alive?
The number of male and female children born alive to this female in the last 12 months is to he recorded separately in three different categories. These are:

a. Still living and still at home with the respondent (i.e staying in the same household with the respondent):
b. Still living but staying with some other households" e.g other relatives, in institutions
etc.: and
c. Those who have since died (regardless of whether the death took place just after or much later in life).

If a woman is visiting, then the question of "still living with you" should he asked with respect to her usual place of residence. That is about children she normally stays with. Enter the number of children as reported by sex in two digits e.g. if 1 male child is living with her shade 0 in the first column and I in the second column under male. If the answer is none. enter 00 and shade the 2 zeros in the two columns. Never leave a column blank.
