HCMMW3 indicates whether the woman reported a "mission mobile clinic" as a source for male condoms. This response category is country-specific to Malawi.

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.

HCMMW3 is combined with HCMMW1 (mission hospital), HCMMW2 (mission health center), and HCMMW9 (mission door-to-door) in HCMPRIVMIS (all faith-based facilities) for the 2010 Malawi sample.

Additionally, HCMMW3 is combined with HCMMW1 and HCMMW2 in HCMPRIVMIS for the 2000 and 2004 Malawi samples.

IPUMS-DHS users interested in using HCMMW3 are encouraged to review HCMPRIVMIS for a more comprehensive response category.


HCMMW3 has slight differences in response wording. For Malawi 2000 and 2004, the header is labeled "mission" with "mobile clinic" as a response. For Malawi 2010, the header combines "mission" and "Christian Health Association of Malawi (CHAM)," with "mobile clinic" as a response.

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 HCMMW3 is a country-specific response, this variable is combined with other responses in HCMPRIVMIS, a variable that encompasses all faith-based facilities as sources of male condoms. IPUMS-DHS users are encouraged to review the Description tab of HCMMW3 or the Comparability tab of HCMPRIVMIS for more information on the specific categories combined for Malawi 2000, 2004, and 2010.
