Description

For women who gave birth in the last three to five years, ANCAREPELVIC_ALL indicates whether the woman was given a pelvic/internal exam at least once during antenatal care.

ANCAREPELVIC_ALL consists of separate variables, covering the most recent birth (ANCAREPELVIC_01) and, in some cases, additional births, up to, potentially, the sixth-most-recent birth (i.e., ANCAREPELVIC_02, ANCAREPELVIC_03, ANCAREPELVIC_04, ANCAREPELVIC_05, and ANCAREPELVIC_06). For most surveys, this information on pelvic exams during pregnancy was collected for only the most recent birth; exceptions are noted in the comparability section.
