Codes and Frequencies
HCMJO2 indicates whether the woman reported a public university hospital as a source for (male) condoms. This response category is country-specific to Jordan.
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.
HCMJO2 is combined with HCMJO1 (government hospital) in HCMPUBHOS (all public hospitals) for the 2002, 2007, 2012, and 2017 Jordan samples. IPUMS-DHS users interested in using HCMJO2 are encouraged to review HCMPUBHOS for a more comprehensive response category.
HCMJO2 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.
Although HCMJO2 is a country-specific response, this variable is combined with other responses in HCMPUBHOS, a variable that encompasses all public hospitals as sources of male condoms. IPUMS-DHS users are encouraged to review the Description tab of HCMJO2 or the Comparability tab of HCMPUBHOS for more information on the specific categories combined for the Jordan samples.
