Dear All,
I am trying to calculate unmet need for postpartum family planning services among the women in Bangladesh by using BDHS, 2014 data. Though several researcher have discussed regarding unmet need for family planning services, no one previously discussed this issue. One previous DHS publication mention a few though really inadequate( https://www.measureevaluation.org/prh/rh_indicators/family-p lanning/family-planning-and-maternal-and-child-health/percen t-of-postpartum-women-with-unmet-need-for).

Can anyone help me in this regard. What variables I need to calculate unmet need for postpartum family planning services? Stata code much appreciate.

Thanks in advance.

Nuruzzaman

Following is a response from Senior DHS Stata Specialist, Tom Pullum:


The IR file from this survey includes three possible measures of unmet need for family planning (v624, v626, v626a). You are asking about unmet need for a specific type of family planning services. It would not be a trivial matter to de develop a measure. You could try to do this, or some other users may have suggestions, but this is not something that DHS staff can help with.
