Comparability

Along with universe differences, the responses categories for MARREL vary across samples. To maximize comparability, IPUMS-DHS uses a composite coding system in which broad categories share a common first digit. The meaning of "other" in a given sample depends on the categories specified for that survey. For the question wording and response categories appearing on the questionnaire for surveys of interest, consult the Survey Text tab.

Comparability - Standard DHS

MARREL is a country-specific variable, and it is not included in any phase of the standard DHS questionnaire.

Comparability — Togo [top]

The Togo 1988 survey responses are not limited to a woman's first husband. As this question is asked of all women who have ever had sexual intercourse, the responses include information about never married women's first sexual partner as well as ever married women's first husband.
