For the survey-specific coding, go to the Contraceptive Calendar Tutorial, and under Programs you will find Survey-specific coding. You will find a link to Calendar and Calendar recoding.sps, which provide survey-specific recoding of additional codes. This code is up to date at the time of writing in 2017, but may not have code for newer surveys.

A couple of codes to note:
In DHS6 and later surveys code "M" means "Other modern methods"
In DHS7 and later surveys code "E" means "Emergency contraception" and code "S" means "Standard days method".

If the coding in Calendar does not provide you with the information needed, let us know specifically which codes for which surveys you need help with.
