PREGTERMCMC (V231) reports the century month code of the respondent's last pregnancy termination, according to the Gregorian calendar.
According to the DHS Recode Manuals, "The CMC date of termination is calculated from the preceding questions [on month and year of last pregnancy termination], or from the calendar, if possible, in cases where an exact date was not given for the date of last pregnancy termination."
For detailed discussion of the calculation and interpretation of century month codes, see DOBCMC (Respondent's date of birth, in century months).
