Comparability — General

There are significant universe differences between samples. Most samples limit the question to women of child bearing age, and some to ever-married women. Most importantly, some samples restrict the universe to births within the previous 12 to 24 months, while the others ask about sex of the last birth regardless of when it occurred.

Some samples lack information on multiple births.
