GENERAL
Nigeria

Comparability

Apart from slight differences in question wording, FCFLESH (G103) is largely comparable across samples.

A minority of samples included question probes in FCNICK (G104), (See Survey Text) which required the interviewer to change the response if inconsistencies were present between the two variables. This may have produced cross-sample differences in the accuracy of responses for FCFLESH (G103).

Comparability - Standard DHS

While FCFLESH (G103) is not included in the standard DHS questionnaire, it is included in all three versions of the standard DHS module on female circumcision.

Comparability — Nigeria [top]

A DHS final report for Nigeria includes the following text on comparability problems: "The 2008 NDHS showed a higher prevalence of female circumcision than that reported in the 2003 NDHS (30 percent versus 19 percent). However, this increase was actually due to variations in the definition of FGC used in the two surveys. In the 2008 NDHS, some of the field teams included angurya and gishiri cuts in the FGC category while others did not. This was not the case in 2003 NDHS. In the 2013 NDHS, the definition of FGC explicitly followed the WHO definition ... and captured the practice of angurya and gishiri cuts. Any comparisons of FGC data from the 2013 survey with data from these earlier surveys should be made with caution."
