Constructed from a series of questions, AIDCONUSE (V765) reports whether the woman had ever used condoms, and if so, whether she used condoms for family planning, for STI prevention, or for both family planning and STI prevention.
Women are asked about use of condoms for family planning reasons in the contraception table. AIDCONUSE also draws upon a question asking about the woman's use of condoms for STI prevention. This question is worded as "Have you ever used a condom during sexual relations to avoid getting AIDS or transmitting illnesses like AIDS?" or some slight variation.
IPUMS-DHS users may also be interested in the related variable AIDCONHEARD (V765), which reports whether the woman knew of condoms, and if so, whether she knew about using condoms for family planning, for STI prevention, or for both family planning and STI prevention.
