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


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

86 cases are aged 15-17 years old and for whom a marital status is reported in the raw data. Those cases were kept in the harmonized version of the variable though are outside the variable's universe.
