Description

FCKNOWPROBE (G101) indicates whether the woman acknowledged having heard about female circumcision, after being provided with a description of the practice. Women who did not answer "Yes" to FCKNOW (G100) were generally asked to provide a response to FCKNOWPROBE (G101).

Some samples consolidate the simple question and the descriptive probing question on the woman's awareness of female circumcision into one variable (See FCKNOW). FCKNOWPROBE (G101) was designed for samples that instead separate the two questions into distinct variables, with FCKNOW (G100) relating to the non-probing question and FCKNOWPROBE (G101) pertaining to the probing descriptive question.

Comparability

Apart from slight differences in question wording, FCKNOWPROBE (G101), is largely comparable across samples.

Researchers interested in woman's awareness of female circumcision should plan to use both FCKNOW (G100) and FCKNOWPROBE (G101) to maximize comparability across samples.

Comparability - Standard DHS

Questions about female circumcision are not included in the standard DHS, but the two-part question wording quoted above is used in all three versions of the standard DHS module about female circumcision. The supplementary text in the third version of the standard module states that the follow-up question is needed because "sometimes women may know what FGC is but know it by some other name."
