Comparability

Apart from universe differences and slight differences in question wording, STIMFEVER is largely comparable across samples.

Comparability - Standard DHS

A question asking about symptoms of STIs in men is included in Phase IV of the standard DHS questionnaire. STIMFEVER is a country-specific response category.

Comparability — Jordan [top]

The 2007 Jordan sample does not include women who had not heard of STIs other than AIDS in the universe for the "symptoms of STI" variable series. These women are coded as "not in universe" instead of in the "No" category.

The 2002 Jordan sample does not have the same comparability issue as Jordan 2007; the earlier sample follows the coding conventions of most samples that have the "symptoms of STI" questions.

The 2002 Jordan survey includes "Rise in temperature" as a write-in response category.
