Comparability

Along with universe differences, there are question wording differences in SXPAR3YNGR (V821C), but the variable is largely comparable across samples. Most commonly, for women who knew their partner's age, the relative age was calculated by the DHS. For women who did not know their partner's age, the woman was asked whether the sexual partner was younger, about the same age, or older than her. If the partner was older, she was asked whether he was more or less than 10 years older. Surveys that depart from this format are discussed below.

SXPAR3YNGR (V821C) first appears in phase V of the Standard DHS. It is removed in phase VI.
