Comparability

Along with universe differences and slight differences in question wording, FCPERFDAU (G114) varies across samples in response categories. To increase comparability, IPUMS-DHS codes all health professionals with a first digit of "1" and all traditional circumcisers with a first digit of "2." The second and third digit supply more detailed information (e.g., "Trained nurse/midwife" is coded "104").

Comparability - Standard DHS

FCPERFDAU (G114) is not included in the standard DHS questionnaire, but it is included in all three versions of the DHS module on female genital cutting and is a standard variable in DHS Phases 4, 5, and 6.

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."
