I would like to know if any of the country level DHS questionnaire contain questions relevant to
Induction of labour (pharmacological or mechanical method to start labour artificially) or
Medicine (oxytocin/prostaglandins) used to start or progress the labour or
any surgical intervention like artificial rupture of membrane to progress the labour or
labour augmentation.

or anything indicative to induction of labour under the reproductive health section.

Any response would be highly appreciated.

Following is a response from DHS staff member, Tom Pullum:

We have checked, and questions about labor induction or augmentation have never been included in the DHS standard questionnaire or as special questions in any survey.
