I’m confused as to the AHTUS Adult care code (0640). For early years, the code seems to actually mean ‘adult care’, but then for 2003 forward, does it also include child care, as per the description?

I thought the AHTUS data were somewhat harmonized–is that not the case for this particular code?
Thanks in advance for any help!
2003+: Time in adult care broadly includes the following main categories: caring for household adults, helping household adults, caring for and helping non household children, activities related to non-household children’s education/health, caring for non-household adults, and helping non-household adults. Listed are the category examples:
