: All respondents were asked for their consent to participate in the study. Verbal consent from the household head was obtained before approaching any woman for interview. This was done for all women, no matter their age. Following the receipt of consent from the household head, women ages 15–49 were approached and asked to provide verbal consent to participate. This is the approach taken by large demographic surveys in this context. All study tools including the consent procedures were approved by the Institutional Review Board at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill by the National Health Research Ethics Committee of Nigeria (NHREC) in Nigeria. Co-authors ISS and LMC were Principal Investigator and Co-investigator, respectively, on the Nigerian Urban Reproductive Health Initiative (NURHI) Sustainability Study and were part of the original data collection. In addition these data are publicly accessible on the Carolina Population Center’s Dataverse site.
