AGE reports the woman's age at her last birthday as reported by the woman herself. AGE may differ from the woman's age as reported by the respondent of the household questionnaire (AGEHQ). When AGE and AGEHQ differ, AGE is usually the more accurate measure, since people are more likely to know their own exact age than the ages of other people.

The question associated with this variable was included in the female questionnaire.


There are no comparability issues.
