Description

For women who gave birth in the last three to five years, ANCAREABD_ALL indicates whether her abdomen was examined or palpated at least once during antenatal care.

ANCAREABD_ALL consists of separate variables, covering the most recent birth (ANCAREABD_01) and, in some cases, additional births, up to, potentially, the sixth most recent birth (i.e., ANCAREABD_02, ANCAREABD_03, ANCAREABD_04, ANCAREABD_05, and ANCAREABD_06). For most surveys, this information on whether the pregnant woman's abdomen was examined was collected for only the most recent birth; exceptions are noted in the comparability section.

Comparability

Apart from universe differences and slight differences in question wording, ANCAREABD_ALL is largely comparable across samples. Specific differences in question wording and surveys collecting these data on more than the most recent birth are noted below.

Comparability - Standard DHS

ANCAREABD_ALL is not included in the standard DHS questionnaire. Surveys collecting data on births beyond the most recent birth are noted below.

Comparability — Benin [top]

The 2006 and 2017 Benin samples ask whether the woman's abdomen was palpated. The 2011 Benin sample asks whether the woman's abdomen was examined.

Comparability — India [top]

The 1998 and 2005 India samples ask whether the woman's abdomen was examined. The India 1998 survey collected information on both the most recent birth and the second most recent birth (ANCAREABD_02).

Comparability — Morocco [top]

The 2003 Morocco sample ask whether the woman's belly was measured.

Comparability — Mozambique [top]

The 2003 Mozambique sample ask whether the woman's belly was measured.
