I have a question about child health indicators by birth order using Stata.

So for variables like BORD (birth order number), it's clear that the 1st one (bord_01) contains the information for all children. If you tab bord_02, then the first child group is removed and the birth order is categorized from the second birth.

Now, for variables like h7 (DTP3 coverage), does the same rule apply? So if I tab h7_1 does it include all children 12-59 months old, and h7_2 includes all of the second and later children? Or does h7_1 ONLY include the most recent child, and h7_2 ONLY includes the 2nd most recent child?
