Description

In countries with low contraceptive prevalence, FP1METHSPACE (V369B) reports whether the woman's first use of a contraceptive method was to space or to limit future births.

Most commonly, the question was, "When you first used family planning, did you want to have another child but at a later time [space births], or did you not want to have another child at all [limit births]?" The standard response categories are "wanted child later," did not want another," and "other."
