Codes and Frequencies

HCFNM1 indicates whether the woman reported a "private hospital" as a source for female condoms. This response category is country-specific to Namibia.

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.

HCFNM1 is combined with HCFNM2 (private clinic) in HCFPRIVHOS (all private hospitals and clinics) for the 2013 Namibia sample. IPUMS-DHS users interested in using HCFNM1 are encouraged to review HCFPRIVHOS for a more comprehensive response category.


HCFNM1 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.

Although HCFNM1 is a country-specific response, this variable is combined with other responses in HCFPRIVHOS, a variable that encompasses all private hospitals and clinics as sources of female condoms. IPUMS-DHS users are encouraged to review the Description tab of HCFNM1 or the Comparability tab of HCFPRIVHOS for more information on the specific categories combined for Namibia 2013.
