275. Data derived from the direct sisterhood method adjusted estimates: The direct sisterhood method is a variant of the sisterhood method- a survey-based technique that obtains information by interviewing respondents on the survival of all their adult sisters
CA - Country Adjusted. The figure is the one produced and provided by the country, but adjusted by the international agency for international comparabilityâ€”that is to comply with internationally agreed standards, definitions and classifications (age group, ISCED, etc)
M - Modeled. The figure is modeled by the agency when there is a complete lack of data on the variable being estimated. The model is based on a set of covariatesâ€”other variables for which data are available and that can explain the phenomenon.
