The Reproductive Autonomy Scale Ghana was adapted from the Reproductive Autonomy Scale (RAS) developed by Upadhyay et al. (2014). The adapted version with 6-items includes two modified sub scales of decision-making and communication from the original measure.
Strongly disagree - 1
Disagree - 2
Agree - 3
Strongly agree - 4
The items scores are summed to create a composite score for each sub scale.
