Codes and Frequencies
HCFRW2 indicates whether the woman reported a public district 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.
HCFRW2 is combined with HCFRW1 (public referral hospital) in HCFPUBHOS (all public hospitals) for the 2010 and 2014 Rwanda samples. IPUMS-DHS users interested in using HCFRW2 are encouraged to review HCFPUBHOS for a more comprehensive response category.
HCFRW2 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 HCFRW2 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 HCFRW2 or the Comparability tab of HCFPUBHOS for more information on the specific categories combined for Rwanda 2010 and 2014.
- Rwanda 2010: All women age 15-49.
