Notes
GENERAL NOTES
----------------------
There is no Polygamous status for females. Generally the information about polygamous status is available only for the head (male). For the other individuals we consider those having the status married as monogamous.


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".
