Description

HCMML8 indicates whether the woman reported a public national hospital as a source for male condoms. This response category is country-specific to Mali.

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.

HCMML8 is combined with HCMML9 (public regional hospital) in HCMPUBHOS (all public hospitals) for the Mali samples. IPUMS-DHS users interested in using HCMML8 are encouraged to review HCMPUBHOS for a more comprehensive response category.

Comparability

HCMML8 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 HCMML8 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 HCMML8 or the Comparability tab of HCMPUBHOS for more information on the specific categories combined for Mali 2012.
