ELIGTYPE reports the person's eligibility for membership in subgroups associated with different sets of questions included in the female-child nutrition questionnaire. Subgroup names correspond with a prefix used in the variable names for questions administered to members of the subgroup as follows:
12: YK - Youngest living biological child aged 2-5 of a woman aged 10-49, both of whom live in a household with another child under age 2 that is not the woman's biological offspring (round 1 samples only)
13: OTK - Any living biological child aged 2-5 of a woman aged 10-49 who is also the biological mother or primary caretaker for a younger child (round 1 samples only)
14: K - Any living child aged 2-5 (round 2 samples only)
32: Members of households where no household members were included in the female-child nutrition sample.
In round 1 samples, infants included in the subgroup INF include the youngest child under age 2 whose primary caretaker is a woman aged 10-49. (These infants may be the biological child of the woman, or a non-biological child in her care. Infants under 2 whose primary caretaker is not a woman aged 10-49 were not included in the round 1 nutrition sample; if the woman was primary caretaker for multiple children under 2, only the youngest was included in the round 1 nutrition sample). In round 2 samples, infants included in the subgroup INF include any child under age 2 identified by the household screening questionnaire.
In round 1 samples, women included in the subgroup WN include women aged 10-49 who lived in a household with an infant under age 2. In round 2 samples, women in the WN subgroup include women aged 10-49 living in randomly selected households.
In round 1 samples, children aged 2-5 are subdivided by age into subgroups YK and OTK if they are biological offspring of a women aged 10-49 who lives with another child under age 2. Consequently, there are no children in subgroup K in round 1 samples. In round 2 samples, children aged 2-5 are not subdivided in this manner; instead, all children aged 2-5 are grouped together in subgroup K.
For round 1 samples, users should note that all children in subgroup YK are the youngest biological child of their mother, who also lives with a non-biological child under age 2 for whom she is not the primary caretaker. If a woman has a biological child under age 2 in subgroup INF, or if she is the primary caretaker for a non-biological child in that subgroup, any of her other biological children aged 2-5 are included in subgroup OTK.
