Notes
GENERAL NOTES
----------------------
There might be a problem identifying the mother from the Roster in case of multiple spouses. This variable can be clearly identified only in the fathers'/mothers' ID is provided in the dataset. In case of only one spouse she is assumed to be the mother, unless the age checking is could identify those living with their step mother (mother died or divorced).
Since very few surveys report this information. Value can be imputed from the roster (or individual file) but might be available only if PMPRES = 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.
