Description

For women who were randomly selected and interviewed for the domestic violence module and were ever married or lived with a man, DVPKNFTHUSE (D105F) indicates whether the woman's husband/partner ever threatened or attacked her with a knife, gun, or other weapon. Samples included in DVPKNFTHUSE ask a single question about intimate partner violence with a weapon.

Some samples collecting data about intimate partner violence with a weapon ask two separate questions: 1) about whether the woman's husband/partner ever threatened her with a weapon, covered by DVPKNIFETH, and 2) whether he ever attacked her with a weapon, covered by DVPKNIFEUSE. Still other samples ask only about whether the partner threatened the woman with a weapon; these samples are included in DVPKNIFETH. See comparability for discussion about combining these variables.

Comparability

Apart from universe differences, DVPKNFTHUSE (D105F) has no comparability problems.

Note that DVPKNFTHUSE does not allow the researcher to distinguish women threatened with a weapon from women attacked with a weapon. Only an affirmative answer to DVPKNIFEUSE clearly indicates an attack with a weapon, but a relatively small number of samples contain that variable. To include the maximum number of samples in studying intimate partner violence involving a weapon (either threatened or used), count all cases with an affirmative response in any of the three variables: DVPKNFTHUSE, DVPKNIFETH, and DVPKNIFEUSE.

Comparability - Standard DHS

DVPKNFTHUSE (D105F) is not included in the standard DHS questionnaire for any phase, but it is included in phases V, VI, and VII of the standard domestic violence module.
