Total children aged 2-14 years
Interviewer instructions
The purpose of this module is to obtain information on the use of physical and verbal means of disciplining children. The module aims to measure a range of discipline and punishment responses, from non-violent approaches to psychological aggression to moderate and severe forms of physical punishment. 

The module has a unique structure and approach. You will use the first part to select, randomly, the child for whom you will be asking the questions CD11-CD13. These questions are placed in the second part of the module, and are designed to collect information about disciplinary methods used by the mother or primary caretaker for the selected child.

TABLE 1 is used to list all CHILDREN AGED 2-14 YEARS ELIGIBLE FOR CHILD DISCIPLINE QUESTIONS. As described in the module itself, you will review the Household Listing and list each of the children aged 2-14 years (including children age 2 and age 14) in the table in order according to their line number (HL1). You should not include other household members outside of the age range of 2-14 years. One by one, record the line number (HL1), name (CD3), sex (HL4), age (HL5) and line number of mother or primary caretaker, from HL7 or HL8, as described below. Then record the total number of children aged 2-14 years in the box provided (CD7).

CD1. Rank number
This is the number used to identify the one child randomly chosen for this module. You do not need to fill in or do anything in this column since the numbers are already provided.
CD2. Line number
This is the number used to identify each child from the household list who is eligible for this module. Go to the Household Listing and list below each of the children aged 2-14 years (including those age 2 and those age 14) in order according to their line number (HL1). Do not include other household members outside of the age range of 2 to 14 years.

It is very important that you list all eligible children in order according to their line number. Failure to do so may result in failure to select a child randomly and may introduce bias in the selection process.

CD3. Name:
Insert the name of each eligible child in this column next to his/her line number, copying from the Household Listing, column HL2. 

CD4. Sex: 
Record the child's sex from HL4.

CD5. Age:
Record the child's age from HL5.

CD6. Line no. of mother/ caretaker:
Record the line number of the child's mother or primary caretaker, from HL7 or HL8.

CD7. Total children 2-14:
Count the number of children and record the total number of children aged 2-14 years in the box provided.

If there is only one child aged 2-14 years in the household, then skip Table 2 and go to CD9; write down the rank number of the child and continue with CD11 to administer the questions on child discipline to the mother or the primary caretaker of the child.

If there is more than one eligible child on the list, go on to fill in Table 2.
