Codes and Frequencies

ATMW9 indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, the woman reported a public health post/outreach as a place to be tested for the AIDS virus. This response category is country-specific to Malawi.

Although IPUMS-DHS integrates "public health post" (see ATPUBHP) across samples, ATMW9 is not included in that integrated variable because multiple sources are consolidated into a single category in ATMW9.


ATMW9 has no comparability problems.

Comparability - Standard DHS

An open-ended question about where one can get tested for the AIDS virus is included in Phase V forward of the standard DHS questionnaire. ATMW9 is a country-specific response not included in the standard DHS modules.
