Description

FPTALKSON indicates whether the woman has recently discussed the practice of family planning with her son(s).

Comparability

Along with slight universe differences, FPTALKSON differs across samples in question wording, which may reduce the variable's comparability.

Most commonly, the surveys asked, "In the last few months, have you discussed the practice of family planning with your friends, neighbors, or relatives?"
If the woman said "yes," she was then asked, "With whom? Anyone else?" FPTALKSON captures whether the woman mentioned her son(s) in response to the open-ended question.

In the standard wording, the exact number of months is not specified, and the question refers to an ambiguous time interval. However, some samples refer to a specific number of months. For example, some samples ask about the discussion of family planning in the last 12 or 6 months.

Varying time intervals could lead to variation in the frequency of responses. Researchers interested in using FPTALKSON should take the reference period into consideration when comparing across samples. See Survey Text. Samples with additional comparability problems are discussed below.

Comparability - Standard DHS

FPTALKSON is included in the standard DHS questionnaire for Phases III and IV.
