Description

For women who gave birth in the 5 years before the survey and delivered their child at home, away from a medical facility, or who delivered their child at a medical facility and did not receive a health check before being discharged from the health facility, DELPPCHKA_ALL (M66_x) indicates whether the woman received a postpartum health check sometime after the delivery of her child.

DELPPCHKA_ALL consists of a set of six separate variables, covering the most recent birth (DELPPCHKA_01) up to the sixth-most-recent birth (i.e., DELPPCHKA_02, DELPPCHKA_03, DELPPCHKA_04, DELPPCHKA_05, and DELPPCHKA_06) during the reference period prior to the survey. If DELPPCHKA_ALL is included in a data extract, all these separate variables are included in a researcher's data file.

For surveys including this question, information for this variable was collected on all births, up to a maximum of six, in the reference period. In many cases, data were hypothetically collected on up to six births, but no women in the survey had so many births (e.g., no woman had 4 or more births in 3 years, or had 5 or 6 births in 5 years). If, for example, no woman in a survey had 6 births in five years and only blank values were included in the original DHS file, then DELPPCHKA_06 would not be available for that survey in IPUMS-DHS.

Many surveys, specified in the Comparability section, collected this information for the most recent birth only (DELPPCHKA_01).
