Interviewer instructions
Ask the household members to identify the household head, who will be assigned ID number 1. If the primary female respondent is not available, please try to identify (among those present) the person who has the most information on the members of the household.
Order in which you should list household members:
First - Household Head
Second – Spouse and co-wives, most senior wife first (only if the wives are household members)
Third – Children of household head, oldest children first
Fourth – Other household members – such as relatives, then servants, etc.

Start with the ID Code “0” for the household head. Subsequent numbers should be 1, 2, 3, 4,… The ID Code is the number you will use to identify each household member in the rest of the questionnaires.
