Codes and Frequencies
If the woman's closest female friend has ever successfully done something to regulate her period because of a suspected pregnancy, and if she tried multiple methods to do so, REG1STFRND1 indicates which method she tried first. If the friend has ever had an abortion to terminate a pregnancy, this variable refers only to a suspected pregnancy after the most recent pregnancy that was aborted.
The question associated with this variable was included in the female questionnaire.
