Description

FCINTENDDAU (G116) indicates whether the woman intends to circumcise her daughter(s) in the future. The daughter(s) in question vary across samples, due to question wording and universe differences; see Comparability.

Comparability

Along with universe differences, question wording varies considerably in FCINTENDDAU (G116), which limits the variable's comparability:

  • For some samples, the question regards the woman's eldest living daughter, if her eldest daughter has not been circumcised.
  • For other samples, the question pertains to all living daughters, if none of the woman's living daughters have been circumcised.
  • For the remaining samples, the woman is asked to provide a response if at least one of her living daughters has not been circumcised.

Such comparability issues stem from changes in question wording in the standard DHS module on circumcision. See "Comparability - Standard DHS" below. Researchers interested in using this variable are also encouraged to consult the Universe and Survey Text tabs to see universe differences and the exact wording for samples of interest.

Only samples with additional comparability problems, such as differing age ranges for the daughters included in the question, are discussed below.

Comparability - Standard DHS

While FCINTENDAU (G116) is not included in the standard DHS questionnaire, the question is included in the first two phases of the standard DHS module on female circumcision. Question wording changed between phases, as described below.

In the first phase of the standard DHS module on female circumcision, FCINTENDDAU pertained to all living daughters and was asked if none of the woman's living daughters had been circumcised.

In the second phase of the standard DHS module on female circumcision, the question was instead asked of women who had at least one living daughter who had not been circumcised.

Comparability — Egypt [top]

The Egypt 2008 survey form asks about all of the woman's living daughters between 0 and 17 years of age. The Egypt 2008 survey form asks about all of the woman's living daughters between 0 and 19 years of age.

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."

Comparability — Yemen [top]

The 2013 Yemen survey asks ever-married women whether they intend to circumcise any living daughter(s) in the future. Never-married women are asked whether they intend to circumcise any daughter in the future.
