Care of Children Under Age 6 - China

The Care of Children Under Age 6 – China measure includes 4 items from the 2015 China Economic, Population, Nutrition, and Health Survey also referred to as the China Health and Nutrition Survey (CHNS). Asked of participants 6 years or older, these items focus on the time spent on caretaking activities for children under age 6 during the week. The CHNS is a multi-province survey aimed at understanding how social, economic, and governmental policies (e.g., family planning efforts) affect the health and nutrition of Chinese residents. Navigational aspects (i.e. skip-out patterns) have not been included on this page but can be viewed on the original questionnaire.
