Description

For women who are not currently using a method of contraception, FPNONPRIVHL (V3A00T) indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, they reported a traditional healer or practitioner as a source of family planning.

Some samples in the "FPNON" series include categories that can be consolidated into a single response. IPUMS-DHS uses supplemental programming to combine these responses in a standard variable while preserving the separate responses in country-specific variables.

For example, a given sample might include multiple categories for different types of traditional practitioners that could be combined to create a more comprehensive response category. See Comparability for more information on the specific categories combined in this variable.

Comparability

In some cases, this response category was organized under a "Private Medical Sector" header, while in others it was organized under an "Other Source" header. Aside from this minor difference, FPNONPRIVHL (V3A00T) is largely comparable across samples.

Comparability - Standard DHS

FPNONPRIVHL (V3A00T) (labeled "traditional practitioner") is included in the standard DHS questionnaire for Phases IV and V, but the variable is present in relatively few samples.

Comparability — Namibia [top]

In the 2006 Namibia survey, there are two separate categories for "traditional birth attendant" and "traditional healer." As this variable focuses on all traditional practitioners, these two responses are consolidated in FPNONPRIVHL to create a more comprehensive response category. For researchers interested in preserving these country-specific categories:

  • Traditional birth attendant is listed as FPNONNM3 in IPUMS-DHS
  • Traditional healer is listed as FPNONNM4 in IPUMS-DHS

Comparability — Pakistan [top]

In the 2006 and 2012 Pakistan surveys, there are three separate categories for "homeopath," "hakim," and "dai (traditional birth attendant)." As this variable focuses on all traditional practitioners, these three responses are consolidated in FPNONPRIVHL to create a more comprehensive response category. For researchers interested in preserving these country-specific categories:

  • Homeopath is listed as FPNONPK5 in IPUMS-DHS
  • Hakim is listed as FPNONPK6 in IPUMS-DHS
  • Dai is listed as FPNONPK7 in IPUMS-DHS
