FSHOWACC indicates whether the woman reported "accidents" in response to an open-ended question about how fistula can be contracted. The "accidents" response was written into a blank for "other" answers on the survey form.

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


FSHOWACC has no comparability problems.

Comparability - Standard DHS

FSHOWACC is in neither the standard DHS questionnaire nor the DHS standard fistula module.
