I am a PhD student working in the field of female genital cutting (FGC).
We are planning a cluster randomized intervention study to investigate knowledge, attitudes and practice of FGC.

For the sample size calculation we need to estimate the design effect (or the intracluster correlation coefficient).
I have found that DHS publish design effect for some of the questions used in the questionnaire. But I have not found this reported for the questions in the Female Genital Cutting Model.
Is this information available somewhere?

Much grateful for an answer!
