Codes

0 = No
1 = Yes
7 = Don't know
8 = Missing
9 = NIU (not in universe)

Description

For women who gave birth in the last three to five years, ANCONV_ALL indicates whether she experienced convulsions while pregnant.

ANCONV_ALL consists of separate variables, covering the most recent birth (ANCONV_01) and, in some cases, additional births, potentially up to the sixth-most-recent birth (i.e., ANCONV_02, ANCONV_03, ANCONV_04, ANCONV_05, and ANCONV_06). For most surveys, this information on convulsions as a complication of pregnancy 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, ANCONV_ALL is largely comparable across samples. Surveys collecting these data on more than the most recent birth are noted below.

Comparability - Standard DHS

ANCONV_ALL is a country-specific variable, and it is not included in the standard DHS questionnaire.

Comparability — India [top]

The 1998 and 2005 India surveys ask whether the woman experienced "convulsions not from fever." The 2005 and 2015 India surveys collected this information on only the most recent birth; the 1998 India survey collected this information on both the most recent birth (ANCONV_01) and the second-most-recent birth (ANCONV_02).
