DELMW4_ALL variables are 1-digit variables.
0 = No
1 = Yes
8 = Missing
9 = NIU (not in universe)
For women who gave birth in the last five years, DELMW4_ALL indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, they reported a traditional birth attendant with unknown training gave delivery care for a recent birth. This response category is country-specific to Malawi.
DELMW4_ALL consists of a set of up to six separate variables, covering the most recent birth (DELMW4_01) up to the sixth-most-recent birth (i.e., DELMW4_02, DELMW4_03, DELMW4_04, DELMW4_05, and DELMW4_06) during the reference period prior to the survey. If DELMW4_ALL is included in a data extract, all these separate variables are included in a researcher's data file.
