Codes and Frequencies
For women who gave birth in the last 5 years and who received antenatal care during their most recent pregnancy, ANCMZ2_01 indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, they reported receiving care at a public "provincial hospital." This response category is country-specific to Mozambique.
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.
ANCMZ2_01 is combined with ANCMZ1_01 (Public central hospital) and ANCMZ3_01 (Public rural hospital) in ANCPUBHOS_01 (all public hospitals) for the 2011 Mozambique sample. IPUMS-DHS users interested in using ANCMZ2_01 are encouraged to review ANCPUBHOS_01 for a more comprehensive response category.
ANCMZ2_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 ANCMZ2_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 ANCMZ2_01 or the Comparability tab of ANCPUBHOS_01 for more information on the specific categories combined for Mozambique 2011.
