Codes and Frequencies
FPLASTMO reports the calendar month when the respondent last obtained her most recent family planning method.
Note that January consistently has the highest frequency across samples. Due to the data entry format of the survey, if a respondent reported a year but not a month for when she stopped using her most recent family planning method, January was the default month for FPLASTMO.
The question associated with this variable was included in the female questionnaire.
There are no comparability issues.
