At the time you became pregnant did you want to become pregnant then, did you want to wait until later, or did you not want to have any more children?
This question is asked only to women who are pregnant at the time of interview (CP1=1), and the answer is used to assess the woman's need for contraception: If she did not want to become pregnant, she is considered to have 'unmet need'. Read the entire question to the respondent before accepting an answer, stressing the underlined words. Circle the code corresponding to the response given. Whatever the woman's response to this question, you should skip to CP4B.
