Codes and Frequencies
FCCOMPOTH indicates whether the woman experienced some other complication of female circumcision. "Other" must be interpreted relative to the specific responses about complications in a given sample.
Apart from universe differences and slight differences in question wording, FCCOMPOTH is largely comparable across samples.
Comparability - Standard DHS
FCCOMPOTH is included in neither the standard DHS questionnaire nor in any of the three versions of the standard DHS module on female genital cutting.
