437A) Did this person talk to you about using a family planning method?
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.
DELFPADV_ALL indicates whether anyone in the health facility talked with the respondent about family planning after delivery.
DELFPADV_ALL consists of a set of up to six separate variables, covering the most recent birth (DELFPADV_01) up to, potentially, the sixth-most-recent birth (i.e., DELFPADV_02, DELFPADV_03, DELFPADV_04, DELFPADV_05, and DELFPADV_06) during the reference period prior to the survey. If DELFPADV_ALL is included in a data extract, all these separate variables are included in a researcher's data file.
In many cases, data were hypothetically collected on up to six births, but no women in the survey had so many births (e.g., no woman had 4 or more births in 3 years, or had 5 or 6 births in 5 years). If, for example, no woman in a survey had 6 births in five years and only blank values were included in the original DHS file, then DELFPADV_06 would not be available for that survey in IPUMS-DHS.
