Comparability

While the question wording for FPCURDEAL (V3A04) is largely standard, IPUMS-DHS users should be careful to take note of universe differences across samples. For most samples, the universe included women who began to use a "modern" contraceptive method and were told about potential side effects of that method in the last five years. According to the standard DHS recode manual, the following forms of contraception are considered to be modern methods:

  • Pill
  • IUD
  • Injections
  • Diaphragm/foam/jelly
  • Female Sterilization
  • Implants
  • Lactational amenorrhea
  • Female condom

In some surveys, the meaning of "modern" method varies, and, as a result, the specific methods that were considered "modern" for this variable vary across samples. Most commonly, the lactational amenorrhea method (LAM), female condoms, and diaphragm/foam/jelly were not included in this grouping, so users of these methods were excluded, but as noted below, some samples diverged from this convention.
