Summary 

These data were collected as part of the Improving Methods to Measure Comparable Mortality by Cause project, funded by Australia's National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC). The four datasets correspond to two different verbal autopsy (VA) instruments each used at two different sites: Matlab, Bangladesh, and Bohol, Philippines. The datasets for the paper instrument include when the interview was conducted, when it was checked by a supervisor and when it was computerized. The datasets for the tablets include the interview times recorded by the electronic tablet device used to collect the data.
