The Collection of Marital Status Data in Botswana: A Review of the 'Living Together' Category
This paper reviews the definitions used in Botswana to measure the 'living together' category which is meant to capture information on cohabitation. Using data from the 2001 census and the 1996 Family and Health Survey, it illuminates some of the measurement complexities and inaccuracies that may arise from application of current definitions. A number of approaches and strategies designed to improve the measurement of cohabitation are suggested.
