Description

Constructed from a series of questions, AIDCONHEARD (V764) reports whether the respondent knew of condoms, and if so, did she know about using condoms for family planning, for STI prevention, or for both family planning and STI prevention.

Women are asked about their knowledge of using condoms for family planning reasons in the contraception table. AIDCONHEARD also draws upon a question asking about the woman's knowledge of using condoms for STI prevention. This question is worded as "Some people use a condom during sexual intercourse to protect themselves from AIDS and other sexually transmitted infections. Have you ever heard of this?" or some slight variation.

IPUMS-DHS users may also be interested in the related variable AIDCONUSE (V764), which reports whether the woman had ever used condoms, and if so, whether she used condoms for family planning, for STI prevention, or for both family planning and STI prevention.

Comparability

Apart from slight universe differences and variation in question wording, AIDCONHEARD (V764) is largely comparable across samples.
