Comparability

The question wording for ATTPREG (V606) is largely standard across samples, and the woman's response is consistently coded as being happy, unhappy, or indifferent about getting pregnant in the coming weeks.

However, IPUMS-DHS users should note the universe differences across samples. In all cases, the universe included women who were at risk of pregnancy at the time of the interview. Most commonly, this included women who met four criteria: 1) not pregnant, 2) not infecund, 3) not sterilized, and 4) had had sexual intercourse. However, as noted below, the criteria for "at risk of pregnancy" varies slightly across samples, which may affect comparability.
