For women who made only one visit to a facility to obtain their current/recent family planning method, FPVISITWAIT indicates the amount of time the woman had to wait during this visit.

Note that this variable reports only a specific unit of time i.e., minutes or hours, not the actual duration of the interval. The specific number of minutes or hours is reported in FPVISITWAITVAL. Users must use both FPVISITWAIT and FPVISITWAITVAL to determine the exact amount of time the woman waited at a facility to obtain her current or most recent family planning method. Users may also wish to use FPVISITWAITLONG for women who made more than one visit to a facility.

The question associated with this variable was included in the female questionnaire.
