This variable is not available for any of the currently selected samples.
For children with a fever or cough in the past 2 weeks, FEVTRPK10 indicates, in response to an open-ended question, whether the child received treatment from a public basic health unit (BHU) or family welfare center. This response category is country-specific to Pakistan.
Some samples in the "FEVTR" 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.
IPUMS-DHS users interested in using FEVTRPK10 are encouraged to review FEVTRPUBHC for a more comprehensive response category for these two samples.
Apart from universe differences and slight differences in question wording, AFEVTRPK10 has no comparability problems.
Comparability - Standard DHS
An open-ended question about where treatment was sought for the child's fever/cough is included in the standard DHS questionnaire for Phase II forward.
Although FEVTRPK10 is a country-specific response, it is combined with other responses in FEVTRPUBHC, a standard variable that encompasses all public health centers as sources of fever/cough treatment. IPUMS-DHS users are encouraged to review the Description tab of FEVTRPK10 or the Comparability tab of FEVTRPUBHC for more information on the specific categories combined for Pakistan 2006 and 2012.
