Description

FPKNOEMRG (V304_16) indicates whether the woman knows about emergency contraception as a method for family planning. The complementary variable FPEVUSEMRG indicates whether the woman had ever used emergency contraception to delay or avoid a pregnancy.

Some samples differentiate between spontaneous and probed affirmative responses; see Comparability. In probing questions, emergency contraception is often described by the following:

As an emergency measure, within three days after they have unprotected sexual intercourse, women can take special pills to prevent pregnancy.

Comparability

Apart universe differences and slight differences in question wording, particularly in the description of the method, FPKNOEMRG (V304_16) is largely comparable across samples. IPUMS DHS users are encouraged to review the Survey Text tab for the exact question wording for samples of interest.

In some samples, the woman is first asked to list known methods of contraception in an open-ended question, and then is probed with descriptions of the methods not spontaneously mentioned. Other samples use only yes/no questions describing each contraceptive method. Because not all samples distinguish between spontaneous and probed affirmative responses, IPUMS DHS uses composite coding, with all affirmative responses sharing a first digit of "1," and with the second digit distinguishing between "yes, spontaneously" (code "11") and "yes, probed" (code "12").

Comparability - Standard DHS

FPKNOEMRG (V304_16) is included in Phase IV forward of the standard DHS questionnaire, but it is part of a series on knowledge of family planning methods, which is included in all phases of the standard DHS questionnaire.

Beginning in Phase IV, the response set reduced to two response categories ("yes" and "no"), eliminating the distinction between spontaneous and probed affirmative responses. Beginning in Phase VI, only the probing question is provided in the survey form, and the open-ended question is dropped.
