Codes and Frequencies
HCMMM6 indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, the woman reported Population Services International/Myanmar (PSI/M) as a source for male condoms. This response category is country-specific to Myanmar.
Some samples in the "HCM" series include multiple categories that can be consolidated into a single broad response. IPUMS-DHS uses supplemental programming to combine these responses in a standard variable, while also preserving the separate responses in country-specific variables.
HCMMM6 is combined with HCMMM4 (Marie Stopes International), HCMMM5 (Myanmar Red Cross), HCMMM7 (Myanmar Medical Association), and HCMMM8 (other NGO) in HCMNGO (all NGOs) for the 2015 Myanmar sample. IPUMS-DHS users interested in using HCMMM6 are encouraged to review HCMNGO for a more comprehensive response category.
HCMMM6 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 HCMMM6 is a country-specific response not included in the standard DHS modules, it is combined with other responses in HCMNGO, a standard variable that encompasses all NGOs as potential sources for male condoms. IPUMS-DHS users are encouraged to review the Description tab of HCMMM6 or the Comparability tab of HCMNGO for more information on the specific categories combined for the 2015 Myanmar sample.
