Abstract

In the conservative northern state of Kano, the use of male interviewers was problematic. However, in the other three states, only weak evidence was found to mitigate against the use of male interviewers. In fact, in two states, the proportion of respondents reporting knowledge of several contraceptive methods was significantly higher when male interviewers conducted the survey. Respondents' reports of contraceptive use were very unreliable for interviewers of both sexes. -from Authors
