ANCGN3_01 indicates whether the female respondent received antenatal care during her most recent pregnancy at a government prefectural hospital or community medical center. This response category is country-specific to Guinea.

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.

ANCGN3_01 is combined with ANCGN1_01 (public national hospital) and ANCGN2_01 (public regional hospital) in ANCPUBHOS_01 (all public hospitals) for the 2018 Guinea sample. IPUMS-DHS users interested in using ANCGN3_01 are encouraged to review ANCPUBHOS_01 for a more comprehensive response category.


ANCGN3_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 ANCGN3_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 ANCGN3_01 or the Comparability tab of ANCPUBHOS_01 for more information on the specific categories combined for Guinea 2018.
