Description

CONCURPARS2 (V854B) indicates the cumulative prevalence of concurrent partnerships in a given sample. This measure is defined as the proportion of women with overlapping sexual partnerships at any point in the 12 month interval before the interview.

CONCURPARS2 is constructed based on the woman's responses to questions pertaining to her sexual history. Specifically, the woman was asked when she last had sexual intercourse. If she reported having sex in the last 12 months, she was then asked how long ago she first had sex and how long ago she last had sex with her three most recent partners (where applicable). The woman was classified as having an overlapping sexual partnership if, in the 12 months before the interview, she had sexual intercourse with one partner between two acts of intercourse with another partner.

For more information about how this variable was constructed, see "Measuring Concurrent Sexual Partnerships: Experience of the MEASURE DHS Project to Date," by Joy D. Fishel, Ladys Ortiz, and Bernard Barrere.

In addition, researchers should be careful to distinguish this variable from CONCURPARS1, which indicates the point prevalence of concurrent partnerships.
