Description

For women who gave birth in the last three to five years, ANCAREULTRA_ALL indicates whether the woman was given an ultrasound or sonogram at least once during antenatal care.

ANCAREULTRA_ALL consists of separate variables, covering the most recent birth (ANCAREULTRA_01) and, in some cases, additional births, up to, potentially, the sixth-most-recent birth (i.e., ANCAREULTRA_02, ANCAREULTR_03, ANCAREULTRA_04, ANCAREULTRA_05, and ANCAREULTRA_06). For most surveys, this information on ultrasound exams during pregnancy was collected for only the most recent birth; exceptions are noted in the comparability section.
