UNWANTPGEV indicates whether the woman ever had an unwanted or unintended pregnancy. The question wording does not indicate whether the respondent wanted no more births at all or just did not want a birth at that time.


Apart from universe differences and slight differences in question wording, UNWANTPGEV has no comparability problems.
