Comparability

Apart from universe differences, FPNOWUSLAM (V307_13) is largely comparable across samples.

In the majority of cases, the surveys refer to the "lactational amenorrhea method." Some surveys, as noted below, slightly diverged from this wording.

Comparability - Standard DHS

FPNOWUSLAM (V307_13) is included in the standard DHS questionnaire for Phase IV forward.

Comparability — Egypt [top]

For the 2000, 2005, and 2008 Egyptian surveys, this response category is referred to as "Prolonged breastfeeding."

Comparability — Jordan [top]

For the 2012 Jordan surveys, there are two separate categories for "lactational amenorrhea" and "long term breastfeeding." Because these responses are the same, and no description of lactational amenorrhea (LAM) was included in the 2012 Jordan women's survey, these two responses are consolidated in FPNOWUSLAM.
