Dear DHS team
Greetings,

DHS Analytical Studies No. 55 by Assaf et al 2015 and DHS analytical studies number 44 by Wang et al 2014 provided an important finding on quality of care in FP services. In this regard, I would like to ask the following issues.

1) As Senegal SPA 2014 didn't include observation and client exit interview, both studies considered SPA 2012/13 while dealing about quality of care in FP in Senegal. However, there appeared to be a difference in terms of sample size for the final analysis. Wang et al reported client exit interview of 968 while Assaf et al reported 872. Can you let me know why the difference could happen. I am going to include both studies in a meta-analysis

2) With the intention of providing pooled estimate for OR on certain variable, is it okay to you in getting some data for my purpose (I would like to know the number of observations in the age, education, and waiting time category as opposed to client satisfaction) so that I can pool the OR with other similar findings in Africa. Ultimately, I will able to contribute in terms of improving quality of care in family planning services in Africa.

I strongly appreciate your feedback.

Dear User,
Dr. Wang and Dr. Assaf responded:
Quote:

In AS44 used all FP clients interviewed.
For AS55 we restricted the analysis of the family planning observation and exit interviews to those using a contraceptive method. This was indicated in the table titles and/or notes. We also removed 1 male client.
