Description

RADIOWK (V112) indicates whether the woman usually listens to the radio at least once a week. Women who reported that they listen to the radio daily (see RADIODAY (V111)) were automatically coded as "Yes."

For a comparable variable reporting the frequency of listening to the radio, see RADIOFQ (V158). For a variable bridging RADIOWK and RADIOFQ, see RADIOBRIG.

Comparability

Along with universe differences, RADIOWK (V112) has some variation in question wording across samples. The majority of samples ask, "Do you usually listen to the radio at least once a week?" However, some samples simply ask, "How often do you listen to the radio?" while other samples derive this answer from questions about daily listening. These samples are noted below. Samples using questions about daily listening but not weekly may be especially problematic in this variable.

Comparability - Standard DHS

RADIOWK (V112) is included in the standard DHS questionnaire for Phases I through III. A similar question appears in Phase IV forward, where respondents were asked how often they listen to the radio. The latter question is the basis for the variable RADIOFQ (V158).

Comparability — Burkina Faso [top]

The Burkina Faso 1998 survey asks, "Do you listen to the radio every day?" Consequently, respondents who listen to the radio weekly but not daily may not be captured in this variable for this sample.

Comparability — Cote d'Ivoire [top]

The Cote d'Ivoire survey asks, "Do you listen to the radio every day?" Consequently, respondents who listen to the radio weekly but not daily may not be captured in this variable for this sample.

Comparability — Egypt [top]

The Egypt 1992 and 1995 surveys determine the answer to this question by asking how many hours on average the respondent listens to the radio each day. Respondents who report anything other than "Never" are coded as "Yes" in this variable.

Comparability — Ghana [top]

The Ghana 1998 survey asks, "Do you listen to the radio every day?" Consequently, respondents who listen to the radio weekly but not daily may not be captured in this variable for this sample.

Comparability — Guinea [top]

The Guinea 1999 survey asks, "Do you listen to the radio every day?" Consequently, respondents who listen to the radio weekly but not daily may not be captured in this variable for this sample.

Comparability — Kenya [top]

The Kenya 1998 survey asks, "Do you listen to the radio every day?" Consequently, respondents who listen to the radio weekly but not daily may not be captured in this variable for this sample.

Comparability — Mozambique [top]

The Mozambique 1997 survey asks, "Do you listen to the radio every day?" Consequently, respondents who listen to the radio weekly but not daily may not be captured in this variable for this sample.

Comparability — Niger [top]

The Niger 1998 survey asks, "Do you listen to the radio every day?" Consequently, respondents who listen to the radio weekly but not daily may not be captured in this variable for this sample.

Comparability — Nigeria [top]

The Nigeria 1999 survey asks, "Do you listen to the radio every day?" Consequently, respondents who listen to the radio weekly but not daily may not be captured in this variable for this sample.

Comparability — Tanzania [top]

The Tanzania 1996 survey asks, "How often do you listen to the radio?"

The Tanzania 1999 survey asks, "Do you listen to the radio almost every day, at least once a week, less than once a week, or not at all?"

Comparability — Uganda [top]

The Uganda 1995 survey asks, "How often do you listen to the radio?"

Comparability — Yemen [top]

The 1991 Yemen survey asks, "Do you listen to the radio?" A response of "yes" in this survey does not necessarily indicate the respondent listens to the radio at least once a week.

Comparability — Zambia [top]

The Zambia 1996 survey asks, "How often do you usually listen to a radio? Would you say every day, every other day, at least once a week, at least once a month, a few times a year, or never?"

Comparability — Zimbabwe [top]

The Zimbabwe 1988 and 1994 surveys ask, "Do you listen to the radio every day?" Consequently, respondents who listen to the radio weekly but not daily may not be captured in this variable for these samples.
