Review the Survey Text tab for the exact question wording for samples of interest.

Comparability - Standard DHS

Although questions on whether the woman has used a given contraceptive method are included in the standard DHS questionnaire for Phases 1 to Phase 5 and in all phases of the standard recode manual, FPEVUSCYCB is a country-specific response category that is not included in any of the standard DHS modules.
