Description

HCMGH5 indicates whether the woman reported a government health center 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.

HCMGH5 is combined with HCMGH2 (government health post/CHPS) in HCMPUBHC (public health centers and health posts) for the 2008 and 2014 Ghana samples. IPUMS-DHS users interested in using HCMGH5 are encouraged to review HCMPUBHC for a more comprehensive response category.

Comparability

HCMGH5 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 HCMGH5 is a country-specific response, this variable is combined with other responses in HCMPUBHC, a variable that encompasses public health centers and health posts as sources of male condoms. IPUMS-DHS users are encouraged to review the Description tab of HCMGH5 or the Comparability tab of HCMPUBHC for more information on the specific categories combined for Ghana 2008 and 2014.
