FPEVUSEMN (MV302) is a constructed variable that reports whether the man has ever used a family planning method and, if so, whether he used a modern contraceptive method or only a traditional or folkloric method.
In the DHS, modern methods are pill, IUD, injections, diaphragm, condom, female sterilization, male sterilization, implants, female condom, foam/jelly, lactational amenorrhea, and emergency contraception. Traditional methods are periodic abstinence (rhythm), withdrawal, and abstinence. Folkloric methods are the category "other" and country-specific methods (such as herbs or amulet), which vary across samples.
