Comparability — General

CHBORNF does not pose any problem of comparability apart from differing universes. Some samples limit the question to ever-married females. Other samples have differing age constraints on respondents. Some samples are also implicitly or explicitly top-coded.

For the number of male children ever born, see CHBORNM; or for all children, CHBORN.

Comparability — Benin [top]

The 1992 sample is top-coded at 12+ children, while 2002 and 2013 at 13+ children.

Comparability — Botswana [top]

The 2001 and 2011 samples are top-coded at 10+.

Comparability — Burkina Faso [top]

The universe varies across samples. In the 1996 sample, the question is asked of female household residents age 12 or older. In the 2006 sample, the question is asked of females age 10 or older.

The 1996 sample is top-coded at 13+ female children and the 2006 sample is top-coded at 12+.

Comparability — Cambodia [top]

There are minor differences in top-codes for 2004 and 2013.

Comparability — China [top]

The universe changes from females age 15 to 64 in 1990 to females age 15 to 50 in 2000.

The 1990 sample is top-coded at 9+ children.

Comparability — Colombia [top]

The 2005 sample is top-coded at 15+ female children.

Comparability — Dominican Republic [top]

The age universe changes from 12 or older in 1981 to 15 or older in the later samples.

The 1981 and 2002 samples are top-coded at 15+ and the 2010 sample is top-coded at 12+ female children.

Comparability — Ethiopia [top]

In all samples the number of children is calculated from multiple input variables. Only long-form respondent women (20%) were asked the question in 2007.

Comparability — Fiji [top]

The 1976 sample is top-coded at 9+ female children.

Comparability — Ghana [top]

The 2000 sample is top-coded at 10+ female children.

Comparability — Guatemala [top]

The 1981 sample has a universe of females age 15+, while the 1994 to 2002 samples have the same universe of females age 12 and older.

Data from the 2002 sample are top-coded at 13+ children.

Comparability — Guinea [top]

The 1996 sample is top-coded at 13+ female children, and the 2014 sample is top-coded at 12+ female children.

Comparability — Honduras [top]

The 1988 sample is top-coded at 12+ children.

Comparability — Indonesia [top]

Universes vary across samples with respect to age and marital status. The 1995 variable was constructed from three separate variables including number of daughters at home, number of daughters living away from home, and number of daughters who have died. Those data are preserved in the unharmonized variables. The 1990 and 1995 samples are not top-coded whereas the 2010 sample is.

Comparability — Iran [top]

In both the 2006 and 2011 census, questions about fertility were asked of ever-married women only. The 2011 sample is top-coded at 13+.

Comparability — Iraq [top]

The 1997 sample is top-coded at 12+ female children.

Comparability — Jamaica [top]

The 2001 sample is top-coded at 8+ female children.

Comparability — Kenya [top]

The 1989 data are constructed from separate responses for number of dead female children, number living away from the household, and number present in the household.

The 1999 sample is top-coded at 9+ female children.

Comparability — Laos [top]

The 2005 data are constructed from separate responses for number of dead female children, number living outside from the household, and number living in the household. The census question was asked only of women age 15 to 49 years old. The top-code is 5+ children.

Comparability — Lesotho [top]

The integrated variable in 1996 is constructed from female children at home, away, and dead. The 1996 sample is top-coded at 6+ children and the 2006 sample at 8+ children.

Comparability — Liberia [top]

The 2008 sample is top-coded at 10 or more female children.

Comparability — Malawi [top]

The age universe goes from 10 or older in 1987 to 12 or older in the later samples. Visitors in 2008 were not asked the question.

The top-code changes over samples.

Comparability — Mali [top]

The 2009 sample is top-coded at 12+ female children.

Comparability — Mozambique [top]

The universe changes across samples. The top-code goes from 13+ in 1997 to 12+ in 2007.

Comparability — Myanmar [top]

The 2014 sample is top-coded at 9+ female children.

Comparability — Nepal [top]

The census question was asked only of ever-married women age 15 to 49 years old. The top-code is 10+ children.

Comparability — Nicaragua [top]

The universe changes across samples.

The top-code changes from 14+ in 1995 to 13+ female children in 2005.

Comparability — Nigeria [top]

The universe is women age 15+ or ever-married.

Comparability — Pakistan [top]

The census question in 1973 was asked only of ever-married women and is top-coded at 9 or more female children.

Comparability — Papua New Guinea [top]

The top-code is 8+ children in 1980 and 10+ children in 2000.

Comparability — Paraguay [top]

The 1982 sample was top-coded at 12+ female children.

Comparability — Rwanda [top]

The data are top-coded at 13+ children in 2002 and 12+ children in 2012.

Comparability — Senegal [top]

The 2002 sample is top-coded at 12+ female children, and the 2013 sample is top-coded at 11+ female children.

Comparability — Sierra Leone [top]

The 2004 sample is top-coded at 12+ female children.

Comparability — South Africa [top]

In 2001-2007 and 2016, the census question was only asked of females age 12 to 50. In 2011, only females in private households were asked this question.

The 2016 sample is top-coded at 9+ female children.

Comparability — South Sudan [top]

The question is asked of women age 12 to 54 and is top-coded at 12 children or more.

The 2008 census question was asked only of ever-married women and it top-coded at 14+ female children.

Comparability — Suriname [top]

The 2004 sample is top-coded at 8 female children or more.

Comparability — Tanzania [top]

In the 1988 and 2002 samples, the number of children is calculated from multiple input variables. In 2002, each of those variables has a top code affecting a small number of cases, and CHBORNF underestimates the true value for those women.
