For women who believe female circumcision should continue, FCTYPECONT reports which type of genital cutting/circumcision the woman thinks should go on: clitoridectomy, excision, infibulation, or other.


Apart from universe differences, FCTYPECONT has no comparability problems.

Comparability - Standard DHS

FCTYPECONT is included in neither the standard DHS questionnaire nor in any of the three versions of the standard DHS module on female genital cutting.
