FPVISITWAITVAL reports the amount of time a woman waited at a facility to obtain her current or most recent family planning method. Values are reported in minutes or hours.
Note that the codes in this variable are not reported in a specific unit of time i.e., minutes or hours. The variable must be used in combination with FPVISITWAIT (for women who visited a facility once) or FPVISITWAITLONG (for women who visited a facility more than once) to determine the unit of measurement.
The question associated with this variable was included in the female questionnaire.
