Comparability

Apart from universe differences and slight differences in question wording, PC is comparable across most samples. Samples with significant differences in question wording are discussed below.

The information in PC is taken from the household record, linked to the record of the woman respondent. This information applies to household residents, not temporary visitors, so researchers may wish to exclude visitors using the RESIDENT variable (with visitors coded "2").
