For women who were pregnant and not using a method of family planning at the time of the interview, FPUSPLAN_PREG indicates whether they think they will use a method of family planning to delay or avoid pregnancy in the future. The variable FPUSPLAN contains this information both for women who are currently pregnant and for women who are not pregnant.
Users may also be interested in FPUSPLAN_NPREG, which indicates, for women who were not pregnant at the time of the interview, whether they think they will use a method of family planning to delay or avoid pregnancy in the future.
The question associated with this variable was included in the female questionnaire.
The response options vary somewhat across samples. See the Questionnaire text tab for details.
Comparability with IPUMS-DHS
FPUSPLAN_PREG in IPUMS-PMA is similar to the variable FPUSPLAN in IPUMS-DHS. The IPUMS-PMA variable is based on the single, direct question "You said that you are not currently using a contraceptive method. Do you think you will use a contraceptive method to delay or avoid getting pregnant at any time in the future?" The IPUMS-DHS variable is constructed from a series of questions and reports if the woman intends to use, does not intend to use, or is unsure about whether she will use a method of family planning in the future. Additionally, the IPUMS-DHS variable does not exclude women based on their pregnancy status. See the Survey Text and Universe Tab of the IPUMS-DHS variable for more information.
