  1. *Sample size’s are based on how many women answered the question; Of the total number of women ((All sites (N = 3,863); Rural Uttar Pradesh (N = 942); Hyderabad (N = 1,160); Nicaragua (N = 850) and Uganda (N = 911)), women that did not answer the question were excluded (All sites (N = 181); Rural Uttar Pradesh (N = 21); Hyderabad (N = 0); Nicaragua (N = 139) and Uganda (N = 21)), and women that checked more than one response were accounted for (All sites (N = 487); Rural Uttar Pradesh (N = 4); Hyderabad (N = 297); Nicaragua (N = 6) and Uganda (N = 162)).
  2. Categories are not mutually exclusive; Women could select more than one response category.
  3. P value comparing the distribution among study sites.
