Hi,

I am looking at the different types of cousin marriage that occur in Jordan. In the 2018, 2012 and 2007 datasets cousin marriage is divided into:
- first cousin on both father and mother's side
- first cousin on both mother and father's side
- first cousin on father's side
- first cousin on mother's side
- first cousin on father's side (ibn al amm)
- first cousin on mother's side (ibn al khal)
- second cousin on father's side (ibn al ammah)
- second cousin on mother's side (ibn al khalah)
- other relative

I cannot understand what the difference is between the first two types of double first cousin marriage and I cannot find the original arabic questionnaire that would allow me to understand how they are different.

I imagine that one of them refers to double first cousin marriages where two brothers married two sisters who were their first cousins, and the other refers to where two opposite sex siblings married another pair of opposite sex cousins. However, I would like to know which way around it is as I would like to be able to differentiate between the two.

Many thanks
Olympia

I am pretty new at analysing ASFR and have used standardised packages such as TFR2 from Stata and DHS.rates in R to replicate results that was obtained in the Ghana Maternal Health Survey report. The results that i obtain are inconsistent with what is contained in the report. For example

Results from report by residence
Agegrp Urban Rural Total
15-19 57 95 75

Results Obtained
Agrp. Urban Rural Total
15-19 28 37 32

I hope to have the support to help me figure out why I am not having consistent results. Thank you in advance.
