Description

ATPUBFW (V784F) indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, the woman reported a private field worker as a source for testing for the AIDS virus.

Some samples in the "AT" series include categories that can be consolidated into a single response. IPUMS-DHS uses supplemental programming to combine these responses in a standard variable such as ATPUBFW while preserving the separate responses in country-specific variables. See Comparability for more information on the specific categories combined in this variable.

IPUMS-DHS users should be careful to distinguish ATPUBFW from ATPRIVFW (private fieldworker).

Comparability

Apart from universe differences and slight variation in response category wording, ATPUBFW (V784F) is comparable across most samples. Most commonly, this variable is organized under the "Public Medical Sector" header and is worded as "fieldworker." Some countries diverge from this standard convention, and, in some cases, multiple categories were consolidated to form a single, more comprehensive response. Countries of particular interest are noted below.

Most commonly, this variable included women who have heard of HIV/AIDS and have never been tested for HIV/AIDS. Other samples diverge from this standard, and in these cases, researchers may wish to exclude women who have not heard of HIV/AIDS (using AIDSHEARD) and who have been tested for HIV/AIDS (using AIDTESTEV).

Comparability - Standard DHS

ATPUBFW (V784F) first appears in Phase V of the Standard DHS. This category is removed from the standard questionnaire in Phase VI, but ATPUBFW is still included by some Phase VI samples.

Comparability — Benin [top]

In the 2011 Benin survey, under the "Public Sector" header, there are separate categories for "fieldworker," "health worker," and "community health worker." Because ATPUBFW focuses on all public fieldworkers, these responses are consolidated in this variable to create a more comprehensive response category. For researchers interested in preserving these country-specific categories:

  • Fieldworker is listed as ATBJ1 in IPUMS-DHS
  • Health worker is listed as ATBJ2 in IPUMS-DHS
  • Community health worker is listed as ATBJ3 in IPUMS-DHS

Comparability — Ghana [top]

Ghana 2008 lists this response category as "fieldworker/outreach/peer educator."

Comparability — Malawi [top]

In the 2010 Malawi survey, under the "Public Sector" header, there are separate categories for "health surveillance assistant (HSA)" and "door to door." Because ATPUBFW focuses on all public fieldworkers, these responses are consolidated in this variable to create a more comprehensive response category. For researchers interested in preserving these country-specific categories:

  • HSA is listed as ATMW1 in IPUMS-DHS
  • Door to door is listed as ATMW2 in IPUMS-DHS

Comparability — Tanzania [top]

The Tanzania 2010 survey uses "CBD worker" (or community-based distribution worker) wording.

Comparability — Uganda [top]

The Uganda 2006 survey words this response category as "government community-based worker."

The Uganda 2011 survey words this response category as "public village health team." Village health teams in Uganda use community volunteers trained by medical professionals (under the Uganda Ministry of Health) as primary health contacts in communities. These volunteers perform medical home visits and are akin to fieldworkers..
