Hello,

The variables dm103d and dm103e in the males Colombia dataset are both defined as "Ever CS emotional abuse by spouse/partner". This is as opposed to dm103c, which was defined as "Ever been insulted or made to feel bad by spouse/partner", and is very specific.

Is it possible to get additional information on what the "Ever CS emotional abuse by spouse/partner" specifically refers to for the dm103d and dm103e variables?

Many thanks,
Anne

Following is a response from DHS Research & Data Analysis Director, Tom Pullum:


I just went to the Stata version of the IR file for this survey and entered "describe d103*" (Note the prefix is d, not dm.) I got the following:

/index.php?t=getfile&id=1768&private=0

The variable labels are a pretty good guide to what the "CS" or country-specific questions were. You can also find the questions in the women's questionnaire in an appendix to the final report.

Thank you for the reply.

Can we then assume for the males, specifically the dm variable, that
dm103d would mean "She threatened to leave him"
dm103e would mean "She threatened to take away children"?

Many thanks

Ok--I see now that you were talking about the MR file, and it uses "cs" in the variable label. Usually the questions for men are just the reverse of the questions for women, which is what you are suggesting. To be sure, you should look at the men's questionnaire in the appendix to the final report (https://www.dhsprogram.com/pubs/pdf/FR334/FR334.pdf). It's in Spanish.
