Hi
I have a question about the KR file. Who are the children in the KR file? Are they all the children of the interviewed mothers (dead or alive)? Or are they all the children living in the house at the time of the interview? Do the file include only children under-5 or what is the age limit. I am trying to analyze the data with the under-5 child death as the outcome of interest, and not sure which file to use. The outcome of interest is "Any under-5 death in the family (irrespective of when it was occurred, and whether the child would be under-5 at the time of the survey if he/she would still be alive. Any advice or suggestion?
