Literal question
How many sons live with you?
Interviewer instructions
If the answer to CM3 is 'Yes', record the number of sons and daughters living with the woman in the space provided. If the answer is 'None' for sons (or if she does not have any sons), record '00' in the space provided for sons. Similarly, if she has no daughters now living with her (or if she does not have any daughters), record '00' in the space for daughters. Do not leave either of the spaces blank. Since the question is asked only to women who have children living with them in the same household, at least one of the spaces should have a value higher than 00.

Remember, we are interested only in the respondent's OWN children - not foster children, children of her husband by another woman, or children of another relative.
