This document describes an alternative format for data from the First Malaysian Family Life Survey (MFLS-1) wherein different card types have been split out into separate subfiles. Users of MFLS-1 data may find this multiple subfile format easier to use than the original single file hierarchical format. The subfiles have the same record layout as described in the MFLS-1 codebook (R-2351/5). This document also describes the repunched and revised MFLS-1 male migration history data from MF10, and describes four new files containing data not included on the original MFLS-1 tape. The revised MF10 data is only a subset of the entire set of MF10 questions. The four new data files contain some recall test questions and updated infant feeding and amenorrhea information for women with children under age 3 (see MFLS-1 questionnaire for documentation, R-2351/1).
