New 6.0.png The idea behind the grades for the categories given below is rather to record a picture of the household situation than to use them to calculate if it fits certain criteria. The grade 0 is the lowest and 2 is the highest. The describing text to the grades below are examples that should be adapted to the country's context and is a guideline for the interviewer.
