Comparability

In addition to slight universe differences, there is also some variation in question wording. In many surveys, this question is worded as "Are you currently doing something or using any method to delay or avoid getting pregnant?" while others ask "Are you or your partner currently doing something or using any method to delay or avoid getting pregnant?" (emphasis added). See questionnaire text for more details.

Comparability with IPUMS-DHS

The IPUMS-DHS variables FPTYPNOW and FPUSPATRN could be used to construct a comparable variable to FPCURRUSE. FPTYPNOW indicates whether the woman is using any method of family planning, and if so, whether she is using a modern, traditional, or folkloric method. FPUSPATRN reports whether the woman is currently using, has ever used, or has never used any method of family planning. IPUMS-PMA users should also notice that the universe for FPCURRUSE changes over time, which may affect comparability with FPTYPNOW and FPUSPATRN. See the Survey Text and Universe Tab of the IPUMS-DHS variable for more information.
