Description

For women who were randomly selected and interviewed for the domestic violence module and were ever married or lived with a man, DVPKNIFETHFQ reports how often the woman was threatened with a knife, gun, or other weapon by her husband/partner in the past 12 months.

Many samples that asked specifically about threats with a weapon included a second question about a partner's attacks with a weapon in the past 12 months, with responses in the variable DVPKNIFEUSEF.

Another group of samples, which contain the variable DVPKNFTHUSEF, asked about either threats or attacks with a weapon from a partner in the past 12 months.

Comparability

There are universe differences that limit the comparability of DVPKNIFETHFQ across samples. Only those countries with substantial comparability issues for this variable are discussed below.

Maximizing the number of samples analyzed to study intimate partner violence with a weapon in the past year requires counting all women with an affirmative answer to any of the following three variables: DVPKNFTHUSEF, DVPKNIFETHFQ, and DVPKNIFEUSEF. This approach does not allow the analyst to distinguish between threats and attacks with a weapon in the past 12 months.

Comparability - Standard DHS

DVPKNIFETHFQ is neither included in the standard DHS questionnaire for any phase, nor in any phase of the standard domestic violence module.

Comparability — Egypt [top]

The universe for the Egypt 2005 sample includes only those women who have ever been threatened with a weapon by their husband. As a consequence, the category "Not threatened with knife/gun" is not available for that sample. For all other samples, "Not threatened with knife/gun" indicates that the woman had never been threatened with a weapon by her husband/partner.

To achieve comparability across all samples, analysts may wish to recode DVPKNIFETHFQ for Egypt 2005 so that persons who have a "No" response in DVPKNIFETH are coded in DVPKNIFETHFQ as "Not threatened with knife/gun" (code 0) rather than "Not in universe" (code 99).
