Raw IPV scores were coded as follows: women who reported never experiencing IPV are coded as 0, and others were coded based on reported IPV in the last 12 months: none=1, sometimes=2 and often=3, frequency missing (includes those with no partner in the last 12 months) = 1.5. The PCA-based IPV index was scaled from 0 to 36, so it is roughly comparable to the raw score.
