Marriage before age 15 and age 18

  • Numerator:

  • Number of women that were first married or in union by the exact age of 15 and the exact age of 18 by age groups

  • Denominator:

  • Total number of women aged 15-49 years and 20-49 years surveyed, by age groups


Young women aged 15-19 years currently married or in union

  • Numerator:

  • Number of women aged 15-19 years currently married or in union

  • Denominator:

  • Total number of women aged 15-19 years surveyed


SPSS Program

  • Generates basic table: CP.5

  • Generates

    • percentages of women 15-49 years of age married or in first union before their 15th birthday

    • percentages of women 20-49 years of age married or in first union before their 18th birthday

    • The percentage of women 15-19 years that were married or in union at the moment of the survey


Spousal age difference

  • Numerator:

  • Number of women married/in union aged 15-19 years and 20-24 years with a difference in age of 10 or more years between them and their current spouse

  • Denominator:

  • Total number of women aged 15-19 and 20-24 years surveyed that are currently married or in union


SPSS Program

  • Generates basic table: CP 6

  • Generates

    • Percentage of women 15-19 years of age currently married/in union by groups of age difference with their current spouse

    • Percentage of women 20-24 years of age currently married/in union by groups of age difference with their current spouse


Methodologicalissues

  • Best to report on marriage/union before age 18 only among women 20-24, 25-29, etc.

  • Trends in the proportion of marriage/union before age 15 can be obtained by comparing age cohorts 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, etc

  • Spousal age differences are produced using the age of the current husband
