Literal question
Why is (name's) birth not registered?
Interviewer instructions
This question aims to elicit the reason for non-registration. 

Circle 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, circle '6' for 'Other' and specify the response in the space provided.
