Comparability — Bangladesh [top]

The 2000 Bangladesh survey first asks an open-ended question about complications during pregnancy, childbirth, and after delivery that require medical treatment. This is followed by a series of closed-ended (yes/no) questions asking whether the respondent has heard of the specific complications. The 2000 Bangladesh survey includes "excessive bleeding during or after delivery" as a response category.
