Interviewer instructions
Check CM4 and CM6 of the Child Mortality module. If the respondent has a daughter who is now alive, even if the daughter does not live with the respondent, check the box marked 'Yes' and continue to the next question. If the woman does not have a living daughter, check the box marked 'No' and skip to FG16.

At this point, you will start the second set of questions, which are related to the respondent's daughter(s) (FG8-FG15). These allow for the tracking of intergenerational changes in the practice of FGM/C. If (at least one of) the respondent's daughter(s) is circumcised, questions that focus on the most recently circumcised daughter are asked about the type of circumcision, the age at circumcision, and the type of practitioner who performed the operation.


First ask if (any of) the respondent's daughter(s) has been circumcised. If 'Yes', enter the number in the space provided. If no daughters have been circumcised, circle '00' and skip to FG16.


Record the daughter's name in the space provided.
