Description

HCFPUBHOS (V762BA) indicates whether the woman reported a public hospital 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 public hospitals that could be combined to create a more comprehensive response category. See Comparability for more information on the specific categories combined in HCFPUBHOS.

Comparability

Along with universe differences, HCFPUBHOS (V762BA) 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.

Most commonly, this response category is organized under the "Public Sector" or "Public Medical Sector" header in the survey, and is worded as "government hospital." However, some countries diverge from this standard convention, and, in some cases, multiple categories were consolidated in HCFPUBHOS to form a single, more comprehensive response. Countries of particular interest are noted below.

Additionally, for most samples, this 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 affect the comparability of those samples.

Comparability - Standard DHS

HCFPUBHOS (V762BA) first appears in phase IV of the Standard DHS. It is included and consistent in all subsequent phases of the standard DHS questionnaire.

Comparability — Chad [top]

In the 2014 Chad survey, under the "Public Sector" header, there are separate categories for "hospital/maternity" and "military/garrison hospital." Because HCFPUBHOS focuses on all public hospitals, these responses are consolidated in this variable to create a more comprehensive response category. For researchers interested in preserving these country-specific categories:

  • Hospital/maternity is listed as HCFTD1 in IPUMS-DHS
  • Military/garrison hospital is listed as HCFTD2 in IPUMS-DHS

Comparability — Ghana [top]

The Ghana 2003 survey words this response category as "Govt. Hospital/Polyclinic."

Comparability — Malawi [top]

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

Comparability — Mali [top]

In the 2012 Mali survey, under the "Public Sector" header, there are separate categories for "national hospital" and "regional hospital." Because HCFPUBHOS focuses on all public hospitals, these responses are consolidated in this variable to create a more comprehensive response category. For researchers interested in preserving these country-specific categories:

  • National hospital is listed as HCFML3 in IPUMS-DHS
  • Regional hospital is listed as HCFML4 in IPUMS-DHS

Comparability — Niger [top]

In the 2012 Niger survey, under the "Public Sector" header, there are separate categories for "national hospital," "regional hospital," and "district hospital." Because HCDPUBHOS focuses on all public hospitals, these responses are consolidated in this variable to create a more comprehensive response category. For researchers interested in preserving these country-specific categories:

  • National hospital is listed as HCFNE1 in IPUMS-DHS
  • Regional hospital is listed as HCFNE2 in IPUMS-DHS
  • District hospital is listed as HCFNE3 in IPUMS-DHS

Comparability — Rwanda [top]

In the 2010 and 2014 Rwanda surveys, under the "Public Sector" header, there are separate categories for "referral hospital" and "district hospital." Because HCFPUBHOS focuses on all public hospitals, these responses are consolidated in this variable to create a more comprehensive response category. For researchers interested in preserving these country-specific categories:

  • Referral hospital is listed as HCFRW1 in IPUMS-DHS
  • District hospital is listed as HCFRW2 in IPUMS-DHS

Comparability — Tanzania [top]

In the 2010 Tanzania survey, under the "Public Sector" header, there are separate categories for "referral hospital," "regional hospital," and "district hospital." Because HCFPUBHOS focuses on all public hospitals, these responses are consolidated in this variable to create a more comprehensive response category. For researchers interested in preserving these country-specific categories:

  • Referral hospital is listed as HCFTZ5 in IPUMS-DHS
  • Regional hospital is listed as HCFTZ6 in IPUMS-DHS
  • District hospital is listed as HCFTZ7 in IPUMS-DHS
