Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
These data are from a cohort of over 4000 pregnant women in Mchinji District, Malawi, who were followed up for 6 months after the end of their pregnancy. The women were asked the London Measure of Unplanned Pregnancy (LMUP) and the pregnancy intention question from the Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) at 1 and 6 months postnatally. The order of these two questions was varied in order to be able to investigate whether there was any effect of question order on the reported level of pregnancy intention with either the LMUP or the DHS.
