Description

FSDELIVERTYP reports the characteristics (normal versus difficult delivery, live birth versus stillbirth outcome) of the delivery causing the female respondent's obstetric fistula. Question wording and response categories vary across surveys. See Comparability.

When children are chosen as the unit of analysis, the woman respondent indicates the mother of the child.

Comparability

FSDELIVERTYP varies across samples in question wording and response categories. Some samples distinguished only between normal labor and delivery versus difficult delivery. Others distinguished between live birth and stillbirth from difficult labor. To maximize comparability, IPUMS-DHS uses composite coding, with all difficult deliveries having a first digit of 2 and the second digit distinguishing between live birth and stillbirth, when available.

Comparability - Standard DHS

FSDELIVERTYP is not included in the standard DHS questionnaire, but the standard DHS module on fistula collects information on stillbirth versus live birth and easy versus difficult labor in two separate questions referring to obstetric fistula.
