Description

HCMKE1 indicates whether the woman reported "community health worker" as a source for male condoms. This response category is country-specific to Kenya.

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.

HCMKE1 is combined with HCMKE2 (community-based distributor) in HCMPRIVFW (all private fieldworkers) for the 2014 Kenya sample. IPUMS-DHS users interested in using HCMKE1 are encouraged to review HCMPRIVFW for a more comprehensive response category.

Comparability

HCMKE1 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 HCMKE1 is a country-specific response, this variable is combined with other responses in HCMPRIVFW, a variable that encompasses all private fieldworkers as sources of male condoms. IPUMS-DHS users are encouraged to review the Description tab of HCMKE1 or the Comparability tab of HCMPRIVFW for more information on the specific categories combined for Kenya 2014.
