Literal question
How long ago was the net last soaked or dipped?
If less than 1 month, record '00'.
If answer is "12 months" or "1 year", probe to determine if net was treated exactly 12 months ago or earlier or later.
Interviewer instructions
If the last time was within the last 2 years (24 months), record the number of months ago in the space provided. If the last time was less than 1 month ago, record '00'. If the last time was more than 2 years ago, circle '95'. If the respondent does not know the number of months, probe to obtain his/her best estimate. Circle '98' for 'Not sure' only if the respondent cannot even estimate when the net was last soaked or dipped. If the respondent says 'a year ago', probe to try to determine if the net was obtained exactly 12 months ago, or earlier or later.
