Hi there,

I am assessing women who lost a pregnancy due to domestic violence in India in 2005 compared to 2015. I was able to do this assessment for DHS Colombia data, however, I am not finding the appropriate variables in either India DHS dataset that refer to this specific question. Can anyone help me find this information? Or is it possible they did not even ask this question at all? I was under the impression it was a standard question for the DV assessment?

Thanks so much for your help!

Melissa

Dear User, I looked at the woman's questionnaire for India 2015-16. There is a Q1122 Has any one ever hit, slapped, kicked, or done anything else to hurt you
physically while you were pregnant? Then there is also the calendar. However, I did not see a specific question on losing a pregnancy due to DV.
Thank you!

Thank you very much for looking into this with me.

Can you help me find a variable assessing domestic violence among pregnant women in the 2015 Colombia assessment?

Thank you for your time and help!
