Description

For women who gave birth in the last three to five years, DELBD2_ALL indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, they reported an unqualified doctor gave delivery care for a recent birth. This response category is country-specific to Bangladesh.

DELBD2_ALL consists of a set of up to six separate variables, covering the most recent birth (DELBD2_01) up to the sixth-most-recent birth (i.e., DELBD2_02, DELBD2_03, DELBD2_04, DELBD2_05, and DELBD2_06) during the reference period prior to the survey. If DELBD2_ALL is included in a data extract, all these separate variables are included in a researcher's data file.

Comparability

Apart from universe differences, DELBD2_ALL has no comparability problems.
