My coauthor and I are attempting to look at ever use of contraception across surveys.

I understand that v302 was cut from phase 6, but the phase 6 surveys do contain a variable called "v302a" which in stata is labeled as "ever used anything or tried to delay or avoid getting pregnant."

I wondered whether this includes modern as well as traditional contraception? Or how can I understand how this variable relates to the questions about contraceptive type?

In short, is there any way to construct a variable from the earlier (phase 2-5) surveys (potentially using v302) that would be comparable to v302a in phase 6?

Thanks very much!
