Notes
GENERAL NOTES
----------------------
In case there is no information available about whether the father is dead or not we just use code 2 (not a HH member). In case, the relationship to head variable indicates that the brother of the head is living in the HH with nephews/nieces of the head we assume that these last are the sons/daughters of the head's brother.


COUNTRY SPECIFIC NOTES
----------------------------------
All parents' related variables were generated by ERF including the presence status generated using the relationship to head variable, therefore those dead could not be identified.

Father's and Mother's variables were generated for the head of the household's children, the head him/herself whenever his/her parent(s) are household members, for head’s siblings if parents’ data are available, and for head’s grandchildren if he/she has married sons/daughters or in laws living in the household. In some cases, children were linked to their parents based on the HH data entry order.

In case the head has multiple spouses, the identification of the children’s mothers among different spouses is judgmental whether on age basis, or on members' order in the household.
