Comparability

Apart from universe differences and slight differences in question wording, STIKNOWSYPH (V856A) is largely comparable across samples.

Comparability - Standard DHS

STIKNOWSYPH (V856A) is not included in any phase of the standard DHS questionnaire, but it is included in the standard recode for Phase III.

Comparability — Bangladesh [top]

While most countries ask an open-ended question about which sexually transmitted infections the respondent has heard of, the 2004, 2007, 2011, and 2014 Bangladesh surveys ask, "Have you heard about: Syphilis?"

Comparability — Jordan [top]

While the 2012 Jordan survey asks includes "Syphilis" as a response category, there is also a write-in response category of "syphilis." These two responses are consolidated in STIKNOWSYPH to maximize comparability.

Comparability — Senegal [top]

While most countries ask only an open-ended question about which sexually transmitted infections the respondent has heard of, the 1992 Senegal survey asks two questions: an open-ended question, and, for women who did not report having heard of syphilis, the follow-up question, "Have you ever heard of syphilis?"
