Pre-question
Result of women's interview
Interviewer instructions
Complete this question once you have concluded the interview with the woman. Circle the code corresponding to the result of the interview. If the questionnaire is completed, circle '1' for 'Completed'. If you have not been able to contact the woman after repeated visits, circle '2' for 'Not at home'. If the woman refuses to be interviewed, circle '3' for 'Refused'. If you were able to only partly complete the questionnaire, circle '4' for 'Partly completed'. If the woman is incapacitated, circle '5'. If you have not been able to complete this questionnaire for another reason, you should circle '6' for 'Other' and specify the reason in the space provided. 

Make every attempt to carry out the woman's interview in privacy. Ask all other household members or anyone else who is present (including male members of the survey team) to leave in a courteous manner. 

If the respondent is a mother/caretaker, ask her to collect all the birth certificates and health/ immunization cards she has for her children or the children she cares for before you begin the interview. You will need these when you go on to interview her about her children under age five.

Repeat greeting if not already read to this woman: "WE ARE FROM (country-specific affiliation). WE ARE WORKING ON A PROJECT CONCERNED WITH FAMILY HEALTH AND EDUCATION. I WOULD LIKE TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT THIS. THE INTERVIEW WILL TAKE ABOUT (number) MINUTES. ALL THE INFORMATION WE OBTAIN WILL REMAIN STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL AND YOUR ANSWERS WILL NEVER BE IDENTIFIED. ALSO, YOU ARE NOT OBLIGED TO ANSWER ANY QUESTION YOU DON'T WANT TO, AND YOU MAY WITHDRAW FROM THE INTERVIEW AT ANY TIME. MAY I START NOW?" 

As with the similar sentence at the beginning of the Household Questionnaire, you may change the wording of these introductory sentences as appropriate. You must make sure, however, to include the following when you are introducing yourself: The name of the implementing agency; the topic of the survey; approximate duration of the interview; the issue of confidentiality; and with whom you would like to speak. 

If permission is given, begin the interview. If the respondent does not agree to continue, thank her and go on to the next interview. Later, discuss the refusal with your supervisor; you or another person from the team may attempt to interview the woman for a second time. This will depend on your description of the refusal. However, remember that a woman's participation in the survey must be on a voluntary basis, and potential respondents must never be forced to participate.
