HCFOTHDRUG indicates whether the woman reported an informal drug or street vendor as a source for female condoms.

Users should be careful to distinguish this variable from HCFPUBDRUG and HCFPRIVDRUG, variables that refer to public drug sources and private, formal drug sources, respectively.


HCFOTHDRUG may have some variation in question wording that broadly applies to the "source for female condom" series. For discussion of question wording in this variable series, see the comparability section of HCFDK.

The wording of this response category may vary slightly across samples, and the responses are generally organized under the "other" heading in the survey. IPUMS-DHS users are encouraged to review the Survey Text tab for samples of interest.

Comparability - Standard DHS

An open-ended question on known sources for female condoms is included in the standard DHS questionnaire in Phase IV forward. HCFOTHDRUG is country-specific and not part of the standard DHS questionnaire.
