HCFET9 indicates whether the woman reported a "government health center" as a source for female condoms. This response category is country-specific to Ethiopia.

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.

HCFET9 is combined with HCFET2 (government health post/HEW) in HCFPUBHC (all public health centers and health posts) for the 2011 Ethiopia sample.

IPUMS-DHS users interested in using HCFET9 are encouraged to review HCFPUBHC for a more comprehensive response category.


HCFET9 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 HCFET9 is a country-specific response, this variable is combined with other responses in HCFPUBHC, a variable that encompasses all public health centers and health posts as sources of female condoms. IPUMS-DHS users are encouraged to review the Description tab of HCFET9 or the Comparability tab of HCFPUBHC for more information on the specific categories combined for Ethiopia 2011.
