Codes and Frequencies

HCMNM6 indicates whether the woman reported a public mobile clinic as a source for male condoms. This response category is country-specific to Namibia.

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.

HCMNM6 is combined with HCMNM5 (public outreach point) in HCMPUBMOB (all public mobile clinics) for the 2013 Namibia sample. IPUMS-DHS users interested in using HCMNM6 are encouraged to review HCMPUBMOB for a more comprehensive response category.


HCMNM6 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 HCMNM6 is a country-specific response not included in the standard DHS modules, it is combined with other responses in HCMPUBMOB, a standard variable that encompasses all public mobile clinics as potential sources of male condoms. IPUMS-DHS users are encouraged to review the Description tab of HCMNM6 or the Comparability tab of HCMPUBMOB for more information on the specific categories combined for the 2013 Namibia sample.
