PPABFLAG_ALL (M29_X)
Flag variable for postpartum abstinence

PPABFLAG_ALL variables are 1-digit variables.

Codes

0 = No flag
1 = Greater than interval between birth and succeeding birth
2 = Greater than interval between birth and date of interview by only 1 month
4 = During pregnancy in calendar
8 = Missing
9 = NIU (not in universe)

Description

PPABFLAG_ALL (M29_x) is a flag variable reporting the type of problem found when editing responses about the duration of postpartum abstinence (in PPABMO_ALL), for women who had resumed sexual relations after a birth in the past three to five years. A code of 0 indicates no problem with the original response.

PPABFLAG_ALL consists of a set of six separate variables, covering the most recent birth (PPABFLAG_01) up to the sixth-most-recent birth (i.e., PPABFLAG_02, PPABFLAG_03, PPABFLAG_04, PPABFLAG_05, and PPABFLAG_06) during the reference period prior to the survey. If PPAMFLAG_ALL is included in a data extract, all these separate variables are included in a researcher's data file.

For surveys including this question, information for this variable was collected on all births, up to a maximum of six, in the reference period. In many cases, data were hypothetically collected on up to six births, but no women in the survey had so many births (e.g., no woman had 4 or more births in 3 years, or had 5 or 6 births in 5 years). If, for example, no woman in a survey had 6 births in five years and only blank values were included in the original DHS file, then PPABFLAG_06 would not be available for that survey in IPUMS-DHS.

Comparability

Apart from universe differences, PPABFLAG_ALL (M29_x) has no comparability issues.

Comparability - Standard DHS

PPABFLAG_ALL (M29_x) is not a question in the standard DHS questionnaire. The flag variable is a standard recode variable included in the DHS data for Phase 2 forward.

In Phase 2, there is a code for "Duration of postpartum abstinence extends into the following pregnancy in the calendar" for Model A countries. This code is removed in Phase 3 forward.
