Description

HCFPRIVDRUG (V762BK) indicates whether the woman reported a private pharmacy, drug store, or dispensary as a source for female condoms.

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.

For example, a given sample might include multiple categories for different types of private, formal drug sources that could be combined to create a more comprehensive response category. See Comparability for more information on the specific categories combined in HCFPRIVDRUG.

Comparability

Along with universe differences, HCFPRIVDRUG (V762BK) has some contextual factors regarding question wording that should be noted by researchers. This survey context broadly applies to the "source for female condom" series. For discussion of this topic, see the comparability section of HCFDK.

The response wording in HCFPRIVDRUG varies across samples. Some surveys simply state "pharmacy" as a source for condoms. Other samples combined "pharmacy" with other drug sources, such as "chemist" or "drug store," into a single response.

Some surveys separate "pharmacy" and other private, formal drug sources into distinct categories. As this HCFPRIVDRUG focuses on all private, formal drug sources, IPUMS-DHS consolidates these categories in this variable to form a single, comprehensive response. Countries of particular interest are noted below.

For most samples, the variable was a part of a question that asked the respondent to list all known sources for female condoms. Some countries, discussed below, recorded only the first response, which may impact comparability of those samples.

The Ghana 2003 survey words this category as "pharmacy/chemist/drug store."

In the 2014 Ghana survey, there are separate categories for "pharmacy" and "chemical/drug store." Because HCFPRIVDRUG focuses on all private, formal drug sources, these responses are consolidated in this variable to create a more comprehensive response category. For researchers interested in preserving these country-specific categories:

  • Pharmacy is listed as HCFGH1 in IPUMS-DHS
  • Chemical/drug store is listed as HCFGH2 in IPUMS-DHS

Comparability — Kenya [top]

The 2003 and 2008 Kenya surveys word this response category as "pharmacy/chemist."

For Malawi 2000, only the first response was recorded. Although the respondent may have known of a "pharmacy" as an additional source for female condoms, only her first response was documented.

Comparability — Nigeria [top]

The Nigeria 2003 survey words this category as "pharmacy/patent medicine store [PMS]."

In the 2008 and 2013 Nigerian surveys, there are separate categories for "pharmacy" and "patent medicine store." Because this HCFPRIVDRUG focuses on all private, formal drug sources, these responses are consolidated in this variable to create a more comprehensive response category. For researchers interested in preserving these country-specific categories:

  • Pharmacy is listed as HCFNG1 in IPUMS-DHS
  • PMS is listed as HCFNG2 in IPUMS-DHS

Comparability — Rwanda [top]

In the 2010 and 2014 Rwandan surveys, there are separate categories for "pharmacy" and "dispensary." Because HCFPRIVDRUG focuses on all private, formal drug sources, these responses are consolidated in this category to create a more comprehensive response category. For researchers interested in preserving these country-specific categories:

  • Pharmacy is listed as HCFRW3 in IPUMS-DHS
  • Dispensary is listed as HCFRW4 in IPUMS-DHS

Comparability — Tanzania [top]

In the 2004 and 2010 Tanzanian surveys, there are separate categories for "pharmacy" and "dispensary." Because HCFPRIVDRUG focuses on all private, formal drug sources, these responses are consolidated in this variable to create a more comprehensive response category. For researchers interested in preserving these country-specific categories:

  • Pharmacy is listed as HCFTZ8 in IPUMS-DHS
  • Dispensary is listed as HCFTZ9 in IPUMS-DHS
