Place first sought treatment for child's fever/cough


This variable is not available for any of the currently selected samples.


For young children who received treatment for a fever or cough in the past 2 weeks, FEVTR1SRC (H46A) reports where treatment or advice was first sought. Response categories vary across samples. See Comparability.


Along with universe differences, the response categories for FEVTR1SRC vary across samples.

The harmonized coding categories in the IPUMS-DHS variable FEVTR1SRC were constructed to reflect the major and minor categories in the original DHS variable (H46A). The major categories are:

  • 1000: Public sector facilities
  • 2000: Private medical sector facilities
  • 3000: Non-governmental organizations (NGOs)
  • 4000: Religious/mission facilities
  • 5000: Other

The second, third, and fourth digits of FEVTR1SRC's codes distinguish between specific locations and provide detail present in only some samples.

FEVTR1SRC (H46A) is included in Phase V forward of the standard DHS questionnaire.
