Codes and Frequencies
FPKNOSRCCHRM indicates whether the woman knew of a source where she could obtain a charm or amulet and/or information about using this method, if she wanted to use it to delay or prevent pregnancy.
While FPKNOSRCCHRM is a "Yes/No" variable, the complementary variable FPSRCINCHRM reports the specific source where the woman would go to obtain this method.
FPKNOSRCCHRM has no comparability problems.
Comparability - Standard DHS
Although questions on whether the woman knows a source where she could obtain a given contraceptive method and/or information about using that method is included in the standard DHS questionnaire for Phases I and II, FPKNOSRCCHRM is a country-specific response category that is not included in any of the standard DHS modules.
