The last time you had the pelvic examination, did you have a PAP smear test? (By PAP smear test, I mean did a doctor or nurse use a swab or stick to wipe from inside your vagina, take a sample and send it to a laboratory?)
Do not know
Warning: these figures indicate the number of cases found in the data file. They cannot be interpreted as summary statistics of the population of interest.
This question is only asked to women aged 18-69 who reported having had a pelvic examination in the last 3 years. The purpose is to identify those respondents who had a PAP smear test. If the respondent is unsure what is meant by PAP smear test, read the following description: “A PAP smear test is when a medical professional uses a swab or stick to wipe cells off from the cervix, the opening lining of the womb (uterus). These cells are then sent to a lab and evaluated to determine if the cells are abnormal. The test is used to screen for cervical cancer at an early stage, but can detect other gynaecologic problems as well.”
