Description

For women who are not currently using a method of contraception, FPNONPRIVMIS indicates whether they reported, in response to an open-ended question, a faith-based health facility.

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 faith-based facilities 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 addition to universe differences, the wording of FPNONPRIVMIS varies slightly across samples, as different types of facilities are mentioned, including hospitals, health centers, clinics, and dispensaries. However, these places are consistently labeled "mission" or "religious" facilities and are organized under a "Private Medical Sector" header.

As a result, this variable is ultimately concerned with whether any faith-based health facility was reported, not about the specific type of facility reported. Additionally, in some cases, multiple categories were consolidated to form a single, more comprehensive response. Countries of particular interest are noted below.

Due to considerable variation in wording, IPUMS-DHS users are encouraged to review the Survey Text tab for samples of interest.

Comparability - Standard DHS

An open-ended question about where family planning can be obtained is included in Phase IV forward of the standard DHS questionnaire.

Though responses in this variable are country-specific and not included in the standard DHS modules, they are integrated in FPNONPRIVMIS to increase comparability across samples.

Comparability — Cameroon [top]

In the 2000 and 2004 Cameroon surveys, under the "Mission" header, there are two separate categories for "hospital," and "health center/dispensary." As this variable focuses on all faith-based facilities, these two responses are consolidated in FPNONPRIVMIS to create a more comprehensive response category. For researchers interested in preserving these country-specific categories:

  • Private religious hospital is listed as FPNONCM1 in IPUMS-DHS
  • Mission health center/dispensary is listed as FPNONCM2 in IPUMS-DHS

It should also be noted that "private religious hospital" was originally categorized under the more general "private hospital/clinic" category for both Cameroon samples. IPUMS-DHS ultimately categorized this response under FPNONPRIVMIS as opposed to FPNONPRIVHOS. Moreover, IPUMS-DHS moved the country-specific category, "secular hospital/clinic" to FPNONPRIVHOS. This decision ensures that greater comparability is achieved across samples in both variables.

Comparability — Lesotho [top]

In the 2009 and 2014 Lesotho surveys, under the "CHAL" (Christian Health Association of Lesotho) header, there are three separate categories for "hospital," "health center," and "health post." As this variable focuses on all faith-based facilities, these three responses are consolidated in FPNONPRIVMIS to create a more comprehensive response category. For researchers interested in preserving these country-specific categories:

  • CHAL hospital is listed as FPNONLS1 in IPUMS-DHS
  • CHAL health center is listed as FPNONLS2 in IPUMS-DHS
  • CHAL health post is listed as FPNONLS3 in IPUMS-DHS

Additionally, in the 2004 Lesotho survey, there are separate categories for CHAL hospital and CHAL health center, which are combined in the standard FPNONPRIVMIS and preserved in the country-specific variables, FPNONLS1 and FPNONLS2.

Comparability — Malawi [top]

In the 2000 and 2004 Malawian surveys, under the "Mission" header, there are three separate categories for "hospital," "health center," and "mobile clinic." As this variable focuses on all faith-based facilities, these three responses are consolidated in FPNONPRIVMIS to create a more comprehensive response category. For researchers interested in preserving these country-specific categories:

  • Mission hospital is listed as FPNONMW4 in IPUMS-DHS
  • Mission health center is listed as FPNONMW5 in IPUMS-DHS
  • Mission mobile clinic is listed as FPNONMW6 in IPUMS-DHS

Additionally, in the 2010 Malawian survey, there are separate categories for mission hospital and mission health center, which are combined in the standard FPNONPRIVMIS and preserved in the country-specific variables, FPNONMW4 and FPNONMW5.

Comparability — Tanzania [top]

In the 2004 Tanzanian survey, under the "religious/voluntary" header, there are four separate categories for "referral hospital," "district hospital," "health center," and "dispensary." As this variable focuses on all faith-based facilities, these four responses are consolidated in FPNONPRIVMIS to create a more comprehensive response category. For researchers interested in preserving these country-specific categories:

  • Referral hospital is listed as FPNONTZ6 in IPUMS-DHS
  • District hospital is listed as FPNONTZ7 in IPUMS-DHS
  • Health center is listed as FPNONTZ8 in IPUMS-DHS
  • Dispensary is listed as FPNONTZ9 in IPUMS-DHS
