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.
PREGTERMCMC_NP (V231_NP) reports the century month code of the respondent's last pregnancy termination, according to the Nepali calendar (or Vikram Samvat). The Nepalese year uses 12 lunar months of 29-32 days. According to the Gregorian calendar, the Nepalese year begins in mid-April and ends the following April. In general, the Nepalese calendar is 57 years ahead of 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 in general, see DOBCMC (Respondent's date of birth, in century months).
