Codes and Frequencies

HCMNM3 indicates whether the woman reported a government health center as a source for male condoms. This response category is country-specific to Namibia.

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.

HCMNM3 is combined with HCMNM4 (government health care clinic) in HCMPUBHC (all public health centers) for the 2013 Namibia sample. IPUMS-DHS users interested in using HCMNM3 are encouraged to review HCMPUBHC for a more comprehensive response category.


HCMNM3 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 HCMNM3 is a country-specific response, this variable is combined with other responses in HCMPUBHC, a variable that encompasses all public health centers as sources of male condoms. IPUMS-DHS users are encouraged to review the Description tab of HCMNM3 or the Comparability tab of HCMPUBHC for more information on the specific categories combined for Namibia 2013.
