This seems to be due to the fact that, in some surveys, birth history is not comprehensive.
In Tanzania AIS 2011-12, for instance, birth history only covers the last 6 years.
=> This implies that BR datasets do not always record full birth history.

Does anyone know if there is a list of surveys with full / partial birth history?
Thanks a lot in advance!
