Description

HCARETRANSPORT reports the type of transportation the household members use (or hypothetically would use) to reach the nearest health facility.

The information in HCARETRANSPORT is taken from the household record and applies to regular household residents, not temporary visitors. Researchers may wish to exclude visitors using the RESIDENT variable (with visitors coded "2") when women, children, or births are the unit of analysis, and using the HHRESIDENT variable when household members are the unit of analysis.

Comparability

Along with universe differences, HCARETRANSPORT differs across samples in question wording and response categories. To maximize comparability across samples, IPUMS-DHS uses composite coding, grouping responses into broad categories such as motorized transport and animal transport, with additional detail preserved in the second digit.

Comparability - Standard DHS

HCARETRANSPORT is a country-specific variable not included in the standard DHS household questionnaire.

Comparability — Burundi [top]

The 2016 Burundi survey collected information about a hypothetical situation ("If you had to get to the closest health center"), not about the household's actual experience travelling to a health facility.

Comparability — Lesotho [top]

The 2004, 2009, and 2014 Lesotho surveys collected information about the nearest health facility to the household, which may not have been the facility used by members of that household.
