Codes and Frequencies
DELPPCHKBTD2_01 indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, the woman reported she received a health check from a midwife after delivering her last-born child. This response is country-specific to Chad.
Some samples in the "DELPPCHKB" series include multiple categories that can be consolidated into a single broad response. IPUMS-DHS uses supplemental programming to combine these responses in a standard variable, while also preserving the separate responses in country-specific variables.
DELPPCHKBTD2_01 (midwife) is combined with DELPPCHKBTD1_01 (nurse) for the 2004 Chad sample to create the standard variable DELPPCHKBNURM_ALL (nurse/midwife). IPUMS-DHS users interested in using DELPPCHKBTD2_01 are encouraged to review DELPPCHCKBNURM_ALL for this more comprehensive response category.
