Notes
GENERAL NOTES
----------------------
Should not be imputed, it can be generated only for those to whom the question was asked (in other words, the youngest age at which information is collected may differ depending on the survey).
Married refers to only formal marriages (including legally married). Polygamous unions includes males with multiple spouses.
Number of spouses in household can be applied to compute polygamy.


COUNTRY SPECIFIC NOTES
----------------------------------
The code "1" in the original variable indicating those below the question age category was recoded missing.

The "married polygamous" category was only generated for the head of the household if the number of spouses exceeds "1".
