Description

HCFRW1 indicates whether the woman reported a public referral hospital as a source for female condoms. This response category is country-specific to Rwanda.

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.

HCFRW1 is combined with HCFRW2 (public district hospital) in HCFPUBHOS (all public hospitals) for the 2010 and 2014 Rwanda samples. IPUMS-DHS users interested in using HCFRW1 are encouraged to review HCFPUBHOS for a more comprehensive response category.

Comparability

HCFRW1 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.

Though HCFRW1 is a country-specific response, this variable is combined with other responses in HCFPUBHOS, a variable that encompasses all public hospitals as sources of female condoms. IPUMS-DHS users are encouraged to review the Description tab of HCFRW1 or the Comparability tab of HCFPUBHOS for more information on the specific categories combined for Rwanda 2010 and 2014.
