I would really appreciate help in understanding the GIDX, G121 and G122 variables.

My key question is whether G121$01 and G122$01 relate to the youngest or oldest daughter under the age of 14?

For example, I am looking at an individual who has 7 children, 5 of which are girls. GIDX$01 is 7, the oldest child. Does G121$01 and G122$02 relate to her FGC status, or does G121$01 and G122$01 relate to the youngest girl's FGC status?

I am pretty sure G121$01 relates to GIDX$01 (7) but not sure about G122$01.

Thanks in advance,
