Codes and Frequencies
If the woman has ever used pills to regulate her period because of a suspected pregnancy, REGMEDLOC indicates the location where she obtained the pills. This includes only women who used pills as the first or only method needed to regulate their period; for women who used pills after trying another method first, see REGLASTMEDLOC.
If the woman 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.
