6.7 Block VII. Women age 10-54 who ever married
This block is only asked to women aged 10-54 years old who ever married in order to obtain information on marriage, number of children born alive, children currently alive and deceased children. The characteristics are very useful to count the total number of births and the number of stillbirths. Try to interview the mother in question.

Block VII is filled in after the characteristics of all household members are recorded into Block V and Block VI. In a set of SUPAS95-S there are 4 pages of Block VII that are in pages 26-29. Write the characteristics of ever married women age 10-54 first on page 26, then on page 27 and so forth. If in one household there are more than four ever married women aged 10-54 years old, use an extra page.

For Block VII, read the questions that are printed in small letters.

Question 702: Number of marriages

In order to obtain the exact answer from the respondent, the enumerator has to be careful when asking the question.

a. A married woman: "How many times have you been married including the current husband?"
b. A divorced woman: "How many times have you been married including the previous ex-husband?"
c. A widower: "How many times have you been married including the deceased husband?"
