  1. aOnly those who reported pregnancy in the past 12 months were asked on atleast one episode of antenatal attendance and therefore 1614 had missing data on antenatal care. There was also missing data for age at first pregnancy for four women, missing data on tribe for 160 women, missing data on religion for 160 women, missing data on phone ownership for 11 women, missing data on HIV status for one woman. The number of pregnancies in these categories with missing data does not therefore add up to the total pregnancies (11,477)
