Comparability

In addition to universe differences, the wording of this response category varies across samples. This response option was consistently categorized under a "public sector" header, and the standard wording was "fieldworker." Some samples diverged from this standard convention, using instead variations or combinations of "health worker," "community health worker," and "community-based distribution agent." Exceptions are noted below.

IPUMS-DHS users are encouraged to review the Survey Text tab for the specific wording of samples of interest.
