How long trying to become pregnant - value

This is a 2-digit variable that represents length of time (in months or years) except for the following codes:

95 = Not interviewed (female questionnaire)
96 = Not interviewed (household questionnaire)
97 = Don't know
98 = No response or missing
99 = NIU (not in universe)


PREGTRYDURVAL, together with PREGTRYDUR, reports how long the woman has been trying to become pregnant.

Note that the codes in this variable are not reported in a specific unit of time i.e., months or years. Rather, the unit of time in which the woman responded is reported in PREGTRYDUR. Users must use both PREGTRYDUR and PREGTRYDURVAL to determine the exact amount of time the woman has been trying to become pregnant.

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


There are no comparability issues.
