For women who gave birth in the last 5 years and who received antenatal care during their most recent pregnancy, ANCBD2_01 indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, they reported receiving care from a public specialized college hospital. This response category is country-specific to Bangladesh.

Some samples in the "ANC" series include categories that can be consolidated into a single response. IPUMS-DHS uses supplemental programming to combine these responses in a standard variable while preserving the separate responses in country-specific variables.

ANCBD2_01 is combined with ANCBD1_01 (medical college hospital) and ANCBD3_01 (district hospital) in ANCPUBHOS_01 (all public hospitals) for the 2011 Bangladesh sample. IPUMS-DHS users interested in using ANCBD2_01 are encouraged to review ANCPUBHOS_01 for a more comprehensive response category.


ANCBD2_01 has no comparability problems.

Comparability - Standard DHS

An open-ended question on where antenatal care was sought is included in Phase V forward of the standard DHS questionnaire.

Although ANCBD2_01 is a country-specific response, this variable is combined with other responses in ANCPUBHOS_01, a variable that encompasses all public hospitals as sources of antenatal care. IPUMS-DHS users are encouraged to review the Description tab of ANCBD2_01 or the Comparability tab of ANCPUBHOS_01 for more information on the specific categories combined for Bangladesh 2011 and 2014.
