The request is submitted by HelpAge International.

Accurate data on mortality and causes of death across all ages is required to guide national policies in relation to demography, and provision of health and care services for current and future population. However, death registrations remain rare in low- and middle-income countries as only 9 per cent of deaths are registered, and only 34 countries have high-quality data on causes of deaths. [ref. WHO, 2012, World Health Statistics]
There is a need to improve availability and coverage of national data on mortality.

The module on Adult health and maternal mortality currently collects information about deaths of respondents' siblings. Therefore HelpAge International requests that the module collects information about:
i. Deaths of any member of the household, and
ii. Whether each death was registered
