Dear all,

For the purposes of my research, I would need to know which women in the Nepal DHS 2006 have had an abortion (in the past 5 years for example). In later survey rounds, there is a variable in the IR files that indicates whether the woman has had an abortion in the past 5 years. In the 2006 datafile I cannot find such a variable but only whether the woman has ever had a terminated pregnancy, even though Table 4.5 in the NDHS 2006 report specifies whether a pregnancy ended in miscarriage or abortion. I am struggling to understand how the table has been produced, or how I can figure out who has had an abortion. I would very much appreciate any help.

Best regards,
