Description

BIRTHMO reports the woman's birth month, as reported by the woman. Month of birth is recorded using the Gregorian calendar.

Note that January consistently has the highest frequency across samples. Due to the data entry format of the survey, if a respondent reported a year for her date of birth, but not a month, January was the default month for BIRTHMO.

The question associated with this variable was included in the female questionnaire. For maternal and newborn health samples, the question associated with this variable was included in the female screening questionnaire.

Comparability

The maternal and newborn health samples do not have the issue that other samples have of January having the highest frequency. Apart from this, there are no comparability issues.
