Comparability

Along with universe differences, STIWITCH (V786I) has some variation in question wording that broadly applies to the "symptoms of STI" series. For discussion of question wording in this variable series, see the comparability section of STIWDK (V786Z).

Women who had not heard of sexually transmitted infections apart from AIDS were not asked about STI symptoms, and they were automatically coded under "No" in this series, unless otherwise noted in the comparability text below. For the variable indicating whether the woman has heard of STIs other than AIDS, see STIHEARDOTH (V785).

Comparability - Standard DHS

STIWITCH (V786I) appears in phase IV of the Standard DHS questionnaire but is not included in subsequent phases of the standard questionnaire.

Comparability — Kenya [top]

Unlike the majority of samples, the Kenya 2008 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 Kenya 2003 sample does not have the same comparability issue as Kenya 2008; the earlier sample follows the coding conventions of most samples that have the "symptoms of STI" questions.
