Comparability

Along with universe differences, the response categories for ATWHERE vary across samples.

The harmonized coding categories in the IPUMS-DHS variable ATWHERE were constructed to reflect the major and minor categories in the original DHS variable (V784). The major categories are:

  • 100: Public sector facilities
  • 200: Private medical sector facilities
  • 300: Non-governmental organizations (NGOs)
  • 400: Religious/mission facilities
  • 500: Other

The second and third digits of ATWHERE's codes distinguish between specific locations and provide detail present in only some samples.

Comparability - Standard DHS

ATWHERE (V784) is included in Phase IV of the standard DHS questionnaire.

Beginning in Phase V, respondents were allowed to provide more than one location. These responses can be found in the "AT" series ("Place for HIV test").

Comparability — Rwanda [top]

The 2000 Rwanda survey allowed respondents to provide more than one location. If the respondent gave only one location, that location is reported in ATWHERE. If the respondent gave more than one location, they are coded "990" in ATHWERE ("Multiple responses") and the locations are reported in the "AT" series ("Place for HIV test").
