Description

HCFPRIVHOS (V762BJ) indicates whether the woman reported a private hospital or clinic 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.

Comparability

Along with universe differences, HCFPRIVHOS (V762BJ) 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.

This response category is consistently organized under the "private medical sector" header and is typically worded as "private hospital/clinic." However, some surveys use alternative wording for the response (such as separating "private hospital" and "private clinic"). In these latter cases, multiple categories were consolidated to form a single, more 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 recorded only the first response, which may impact comparability of those samples.

Comparability - Standard DHS

HCFPRIVHOS (V762BJ) first appears in phase IV of the Standard DHS. It is included and consistent in all subsequent phases of the standard DHS questionnaire.

Comparability — Ethiopia [top]

In the Ethiopia 2011 survey, under the "Private Medical Sector" header, there are separate categories for "Private Hospital" and "Private Clinic." Because HCFPRIVHOS focuses on private hospitals and clinics, these responses are consolidated in this variable to create a more comprehensive response category. For researchers interested in preserving these country-specific categories:

  • Private hospital is listed as HCFET10 in IPUMS-DHS
  • Private clinic is listed as HCFET3 in IPUMS-DHS

Comparability — Malawi [top]

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

The Malawi 2010 survey lists this response category as "private hospital/clinic/doctor.

Comparability — Namibia [top]

In the Namibia 2013 survey, under the "Private Medical Sector" header, there are separate categories for "Private Hospital" and "Private Clinic." Because HCFPRIVHOS focuses on private hospitals and clinics, these responses are consolidated in this variable to create a more comprehensive response category. For researchers interested in preserving these country-specific categories:

  • Private hospital is listed as HCFNM1 in IPUMS-DHS
  • Private clinic is listed as HCFNM2 in IPUMS-DHS

Comparability — Niger [top]

The Niger 2012 survey does not have a separate "private doctor" response category. Consequently, HCFPRIVHOS may be capturing "private doctor" responses in addition to "private hospital/clinic" responses.

Comparability — Rwanda [top]

In the 2010 and 2014 Rwanda surveys, there are separate categories for "private polyclinic" and "private clinic." Because HCFPRIVHOS focuses on all private hospitals and clinics, these responses are consolidated in this variable to create a more comprehensive response category. For researchers interested in preserving these country-specific categories:

  • Private polyclinic is listed as HCFRW5 in IPUMS-DHS
  • Private clinic is listed as HCFRW6 in IPUMS-DHS

Comparability — Zambia [top]

The Zambia 2001 and 2007 surveys word this response category as "private hospital/surgery."
