May I see it?
Interviewer instructions
This question aims to redefine the real birth of child. 

If the child has a birth certificate and it was seen, record '1' and skip to BR5. If the child does not have a birth certificate, record  '3', or if the child has a birth certificate but the mother/primary caretaker is unable to show you the certificate record '2'.
