Observed and in/out stock: beads


This variable is not available for any of the currently selected samples.


CYCBOBS indicates whether facilities that provide Standard Days / Cycle Beads currently have supplies in-stock. Some samples report whether or not the interviewer observed the stock; see the Comparability tab.

The question associated with this variable was included in the service delivery point questionnaire.


Some early samples include less detail, providing dichotomous responses based on whether the interviewer observed Standard Days / Cycle Beads in-stock (see the Codes tab to identify samples following this practice). In these early samples, if Standard Days / Cycle Beads were not observed, they were assumed to be "out of stock". In later surveys, interviewers had the option of reporting that Standard Days / Cycle Beads were "in-stock but not observed".

To maximize comparability with the earliest surveys, users should combine responses for "in-stock but not observed" with "out of stock," following the logic that only observed stock was initially treated as present. If users are working only with later sample rounds that include all three possible response categories, they may use all detail or combine codes 1 and 2 for all in-stock cases.
