Hey,
I am using the IAIR42FL dataset ie the women's dataset for India based on NFHS Round II.
In it there are a number of birth history variables such as bidx,bord, b1 till b15.
There are two variables age at death ie b6 and agee at death (months imputed) ie b7. Can you please tell me how to interpret them?

For example:

caseid b6_01 b7_01 b6_03 b7_03
2 1 48 2 312 144 100 0

Can you please tell me what was the age of these two children of women with caseid 21482 when they died? How to interpret b6_01 and b7_01, similarly b6_03 and b7_03?

Regards
