Description

HCFNM6 indicates whether the woman reported a public mobile clinic as a source for female condoms. This response category is country-specific to Namibia.

Some samples in the "HCF" series include multiple categories that can be consolidated into a single broad response. IPUMS-DHS uses supplemental programming to combine these responses in a standard variable, while also preserving the separate responses in country-specific variables.

HCFNM6 is combined with HCFNM5 (public outreach point) in HCFPUBMOB (all public mobile clinics) for the 2013 Namibia sample. IPUMS-DHS users interested in using HCFNM6 are encouraged to review HCFPUBMOB for a more comprehensive response category.

Comparability

HCFNM6 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 HCFNM6 is a country-specific response not included in the standard DHS modules, it is combined with other responses in HCFPUBMOB, a standard variable that encompasses all public mobile clinics as potential sources of female condoms. IPUMS-DHS users are encouraged to review the Description tab of HCFNM6 or the Comparability tab of HCFPUBMOB for more information on the specific categories combined for the 2013 Namibia sample.
