CHBORN
Children ever born

Description

CHBORN reports the number of children ever born to each woman. Women were to report all live births by all fathers, whether or not the children were still living; they were to exclude stillbirths, adopted children, and stepchildren.

User Note:
After removing the "not applicable" category (coded 00), to get the actual number of children ever born, users must subtract 1 from the value of CHBORN.
