Imputation and derivation
Generated by ERF
This information is available for the son/daughter of the head, partially available for the head and brother/sister of the head and is missing for the other individuals (exception for Iraq). In case we have the brother of the head living in the HH with the nephew/niece of the head we assume that these last are the son (daughter) of the head's brother.
Since very few surveys report this information. Value can be imputed from the roster (or individual file) but might be available only if PFPRES = 1.
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.
