Codes and Frequencies
For women who are not currently using a contraceptive method, FPNONJO8 indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, they reported the Institute for Family Health (IFH), a non-governmental organization, as a source of family planning. This response category is country-specific to Jordan.
Some samples in the "FPNON" 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.
FPNONJO8 is combined with FPNONJO6 (UNRWA clinic), FPNONJO9 (International Rescue Committee), and FPNONJO7 (other NGO) in FPNONNGO (all NGOs) for the 2017 Jordan sample. IPUMS-DHS users interested in using FPNONJO8 are encouraged to reviewed FPNONNGO for a more comprehensive response category.
FPNONJO8 has no comparability problems.
Comparability - Standard DHS
An open-ended question about where family planning can be obtained for women not currently using a method is included in Phase IV forward of the standard DHS questionnaire. FPNONJO8 is a country-specific response.
To increase comparability across samples, IPUMS-DHS created the standard variable FPNONNGO to integrate samples including "NGO" as a source of family planning. FPNONJO8 is combined with other NGO responses in that standard variable for the Jordan samples. IPUMS-DHS users are encouraged to review the Description tab of FPNONJO8 or the Comparability tab of FPNONNGO for more information on the specific categories combined for the Jordan samples.
