Literal question
Why is [NAME'S] birth not registered?
Interviewer instructions
This question aims to elicit the reason for non-registration. 

Record the code corresponding to the response. 
Note that although there might be more than one reason for not registering a child, we need to get only one response - the most important one according to the mother/primary caretaker. If the response is definitely not one of the pre-coded responses, record '7' for 'Other' and specify the response in the space provided.
