Description

For women who gave birth in the 5 years before the survey, DELPPCHKB_ALL (M50_x) indicates whether the woman received a health check after delivering her child.

DELPPCHKB_ALL consists of a set of six separate variables, covering the most recent birth (DELPPCHKB_01) up to the sixth-most-recent birth (i.e., DELPPCHKB_02, DELPPCHKB_03, DELPPCHKB_04, DELPPCHKB_05, and DELPPCHKB_06) during the reference period prior to the survey. If DELPPCHKB_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 DELPPCHKB_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 (DELPPCHKB_01).

Comparability

DELPPCHKB_ALL (M50_x) significantly varies in terms of which women are asked this question, ranging from all women who gave birth in the 5 years before the survey, to only women who gave birth at a health facility. Users should be attentive to the "Universe" tab when using this variable. Apart from these universe differences and minor variation in question wording, DELPPCHKB_ALL (M50_x) is comparable across samples.

Comparability - Standard DHS

DELPPCHKB_ALL (M50_x) first appears in phase IV of the standard DHS questionnaire. The variable is removed in phase V and reintroduced in phase VI. DELPPCHKB_ALL is consistent across the phases in which the variable is included in the standard DHS questionnaire.
