Description

HCMGH3 indicates whether the woman reported a private chemical/drug store as a source for male condoms. This response category is country-specific to Ghana.

Some samples in the "HCM" 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.

HCMGH3 is combined with HCMGH1 (private pharmacy) in HCMPRIVDRUG (all private, formal drug sources) for the 2008 and 2014 Ghana samples.

IPUMS-DHS users interested in using HCMGH3 are encouraged to review HCMPRIVDRUG for a more comprehensive response category.

Comparability

HCMGH3 has no comparability problems.

Comparability - Standard DHS

An open-ended question on known sources for male condoms is included in the standard DHS questionnaire in Phases III forward.

Though HCMGH3 is a country-specific response, this variable is combined with other responses in HCMPRIVDRUG, a variable that encompasses all private, formal drug sources as sources of male condoms. IPUMS-DHS users are encouraged to review the Description tab of HCMGH3 or the Comparability tab of HCMPRIVDRUG for more information on the specific categories combined for Ghana 2008 and 2014.
