Description

In the indresp file there is a variable lprnt: Variable label = ever had/fathered children

I am analysing wave 3 data, and this variable has far fewer answers from female respondents than male, but females have more 'inapplicable':

sex corrected * ever had/fathered children Crosstabulation
Count
ever had/fathered children Total
missing inapplicable refusal don't know yes no
sex corrected male 4 19516 1 2 1689 1576 22788
female 2 25116 2 0 762 1069 26951
Total 6 44632 3 2 2451 2645 49739

I have looked at the questionnaire, and I cannot spot a routing that would lead to fewer female respondents. I also cannot see how the variable gets coded as 'inapplicable'.

Is there another variable for the children females have ever had?
