Description

HCFBJ1 indicates whether the woman reported a public fieldworker as a source for female condoms. This response category is country-specific to Benin.

Some samples in the "HCF" 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.

HCFBJ1 is combined with HCFBJ2 (public health worker) and HCFBJ3 (public community health worker) in HCFPUBFW (all public field workers) for the 2011 Benin sample.

IPUMS-DHS users interested in using HCFBJ1 are encouraged to review HCFPUBFW for a more comprehensive response category.

Comparability

HCFBJ1 has no comparability problems.

Comparability - Standard DHS

An open-ended question on known sources for female condoms is included in the standard DHS questionnaire in Phases IV forward.

Though HCFBJ1 is a country-specific response, this variable is combined with other responses in HCFPUBFW, a variable that encompasses all public fieldworkers as sources of female condoms. IPUMS-DHS users are encouraged to review the Description tab of HCFBJ1 or the Comparability tab of HCFPUBFW for more information on the specific categories combined for Benin 2011.
