Interviewer instructions
This is a filter that you will use to make sure that you do not ask question CP4E to women who are pregnant at the time of the interview. Check her response to CP1: If the woman is currently pregnant, mark the corresponding box and skip to the next module. If she is currently not pregnant or is unsure, continue with the next question, CP4E.


A woman who believes that she is incapable of becoming pregnant cannot be considered to have 'unmet need' for contraception. This question aims to learn whether the woman thinks she can conceive a child. Circle the code corresponding to the response given.

Make sure that the woman does not relate her current physical ability to get pregnant with her current marital status. It is important to emphasize to the woman, if necessary, that we are interested in her current physical ability - she may be physically able to get pregnant, but may think that this is not possible because she currently does not have a partner. In such cases, the woman should obviously be coded as 'Yes'.
