For women who are primary caregivers for at least five children in the household under age 5, KID5BIRTHMO reports the birth month of their fifth-youngest child.

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 fifth-youngest child's date of birth, but not a month, January is the default month for KID5BIRTHMO.

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


There are no comparability issues.
