India Human Development Survey- II Women's Questionnaire: Beliefs around Maternal, Newborn and Child Health (MNCH)

This measure uses 3 self-reported items from the second round of the Indian Human Development Survey (IHDS) Women's Questionnaire. IHDS is a nationally representative, multi-dimensional survey conducted across India. This measure captures perceptions of women around MNCH behaviors and practices. Navigational aspects (i.e. skip-out patterns and next question sequences) have not been included on this page but can be viewed on the original questionnaire located at https://www.icpsr.umich.edu/web/pages/DSDR/idhs-II-data-guide.html
