For women aged 15 to 49 who had ever given birth, KID1STBIRTHYR reports the year of their first live birth.
Enumerators were instructed to enter the date as January 1st, 2020 if the respondent did not give a response to the associated survey question. IPUMS-PMA has recoded these cases to "No response or missing." Additionally, IPUMS-PMA has recoded years that were in the future at the time of the interview as "Logical edit - missing." For example, values of 2018 or later in samples from 2016 have been recoded. For some samples, interviews were conducted across two years, for example, some 2016 samples include interviews from early 2017.
