Comparability — General

LASTBYR is generally comparable across samples, aside from differences in the universe. Most of those differences concern the age of women who responded, but some samples also restrict the universe to ever-married women.

The 2005 Colombia sample is bottom coded at "2000 or earlier," which makes it substantially different than other samples in terms of detail.
