Based on a four-part question, FCINFIB indicates whether the woman experienced a circumcision procedure involving infibulation, or removal of the clitoris and labia minora/majora with stitching to narrow the vaginal opening. This question is included in addition to the standard DHS questions inquiring about the woman's circumcision. See FCTYPANG, FCTYPGISH, and FCFLESH2 for the supplementary components of the four-part question.


Apart from universe differences, FCINFIB2 has no comparability problems.
