Dear Kai,

Please refer to Appendix F in both surveys and you will find that q413d in the 2017 survey is similar but not identical to q414d in the 2012 survey. In 2017, q413c reads: "Did you have any complications during this pregnancy (NAME)?" If YES, the respondent is asked q413d "What are the signs of danger or complications? Anything else?" In 2012, q414c asks "Did you have any complications during this pregnancy (NAME)? Any other complications?" and IF YES, "What are they?. I would advise caution when comparing given the wording in English, unless the translations are worded more similarly.

I believe CONVULSIONS AND FAINTING in 2012 and VOMITTING AND NUMB IN FACE OR HEADACHE WITH CONVULSIONS are both intended to reflect signs of pre-eclampsia or eclampsia. I would also advise caution in comparing responses that aren't identical.

Thank you,
Lindsay
