Codes and Frequencies
For women who are currently using an IUD or implant, and who have at least three close female friends aged 15-49 (see FRIENDNUM), FPDISCFRND3 indicates whether the woman discussed her use of that contraception with her "third closest friend".
While the woman could report more than one friend with whom she discussed this matter, her "third closest friend" was defined as the third woman with whom she is most likely to confide, in general.
The question associated with this variable was included in the female questionnaire.
