Codes and Frequencies

HCMNE2 indicates whether the woman reported a public regional hospital as a source for male condoms. This response category is country-specific to Niger.

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.

HCMNE2 is combined with HCMNE1 (public national hospital) and HCMNE3 (public district hospital) in HCMPUBHOS (all public hospitals) for the 2012 Niger sample. IPUMS-DHS users interested in using HCMNE2 are encouraged to review HCMPUBHOS for a more comprehensive response category.


HCMNE2 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 HCMNE2 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 HCMNE2 or the Comparability tab of HCMPUBHOS for more information on the specific categories combined for Niger 2012.
