For women who are currently using a contraceptive method, FPCURNOMO (V337) reports the number of months they have been continuously using their current method.
Starting in Phase II, there are differences in the way these data are reported between Model "A" and Model "B" countries, due to the inclusion of a detailed calendar of events in the five years preceding the interview in Model "A" questionnaires. For Model "B" questionnaires, any response greater than 8 years is topcoded at "96." However, for Model "A" questionnaires, the maximum duration of use that could be recorded is the entire length of the calendar (i.e., 5 years).
