Some samples limit the universe to women of childbearing age or to ever-married women. Top-codes vary across samples.

The 1999 and 2009 census questions specified that the response pertained to children who "usually" lived in the household, while the earlier questionnaires did not include this language. A large number of cases lack responses in the 1979 and 1989 samples.
