DELPPCHKBDOC_ALL indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, the woman reported she received a health check from a doctor after delivering her child.

DELPPCHKBDOC_ALL consists of a set of six separate variables, covering the most recent birth (DELPPCHKBDOC_01) up to the sixth-most-recent birth (i.e., DELPPCHKBDOC_02, DELPPCHKBDOC_03, DELPPCHKBDOC_04, DELPPCHKBDOC_05, and DELPPCHKBDOC_06) during the reference period prior to the survey. If DELPPCHKBDOC_ALL is included in a data extract, all these separate variables are included in a researcher's data file.
