Comparability

Apart from universe differences and slight differences in question wording, AIDSAFEINJLOWR is largely comparable across samples.

Comparability - Standard DHS

AIDSAFEINJLOWR is part of a series on ways to reduce the risk of contracting HIV/AIDS, which is included in Phases III and IV of the standard DHS questionnaire. AIDSAFEINJLOWR is a country-specific response category.

Comparability — Bangladesh [top]

The 1997 Bangladesh sample includes "Use sterile syringes/buy syringes" as a response category. The 2000 Bangladesh sample includes "Avoid unsterilized injections/use disposable injections" as a response category. The 2004 Bangladesh sample includes "Avoid unsterilized needles/syringes" as a response category.

Because the questions included in all three samples have to do with safety when receiving injections, IPUMS-DHS includes the above samples in AIDSAFEINJLOWR.
