Description

HCFKE1 indicates whether the woman reported a "community health worker" as a source for female condoms. This response category is country-specific to Kenya.

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.

HCFKE1 is combined with HCFKE2 (community-based distributor) in HCFPRIVFW (all private field workers) for the 2014 Kenya sample.

IPUMS-DHS users interested in using HCFKE1 are encouraged to review HCFPRIVFW for a more comprehensive response category.

Comparability

HCFKE1 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 HCFKE1 is a country-specific response, this variable is combined with other responses in HCFPRIVFW, a variable that encompasses all private fieldworkers as sources of female condoms. IPUMS-DHS users are encouraged to review the Description tab of HCFKE1 or the Comparability tab of HCFPRIVFW for more information on the specific categories combined for Kenya 2014.
