Friend 1: year of last aborted pregnancy

This variable represents a 4-digit year, except for the following codes:

9998 = No response or missing
9999 = NIU (not in universe)


ABORYR_FRND1 indicates the year when the woman's closest friend last aborted a pregnancy.

Enumerators were instructed to enter either 2020 or 2030 (in later surveys) if the respondent did not give a response to the associated survey question. IPUMS has recoded these cases to "No response or missing."

The question associated with this variable was included in the female questionnaire.


There are no comparability issues.
