Description

For women who gave birth in the last 5 years and who received antenatal care during their most recent pregnancy, ANCLS2_01 indicates whether they received care from a CHAL [Christian Health Association of Lesotho] health center. This response category is country-specific to Lesotho.

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.

ANCLS2_01 is combined with ANCLS1_01 (CHAL hospital) and ANCLS3_01 (CHAL health post) in ANCPRIVMIS_01 (all faith-based facilities) for the 2014 Lesotho sample. ANCLS2_01 is combined with ANCLS1_01 in ANCPRIVMIS_01 for the 2004 and 2009 Lesotho samples. IPUMS-DHS users interested in using ANCLS2_01 are encouraged to review ANCPRIVMIS_01 for a more comprehensive response category.

Comparability

Apart from slight universe differences, ANCLS2_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 ANCLS2_01 is a country-specific response, this variable is combined with other responses in ANCPRIVMIS_01, a variable that encompasses all faith-based facilities as sources of antenatal care. IPUMS-DHS users are encouraged to review the Description tab of ANCLS2_01 or the Comparability tab of ANCPRIVMIS_01 for more information on the specific categories combined for Lesotho 2004, 2009, and 2014.
