Description

ORSBF3 indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, the woman reported a public health post as a source for oral rehydration solution (ORS). ORS is typically used to treat dehydration in individuals with diarrhea. This response is country-specific to Burkina Faso.

Some samples in the "ORS" 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.

ORSBF3 is combined with ORSBF4 (primary health post) in ORSPUBHP (all public health posts) for the 1993 Burkina Faso sample. IPUMS-DHS users interested in using ORSBF3 are encouraged to review ORSPUBHP for a more comprehensive response category.

Comparability

ORSBF3 has no comparability problems.

Comparability - Standard DHS

A question about sources of ORS is included in Phase II of the standard DHS questionnaire.

Although ORSBF3 is a country-specific response, this variable is combined with other responses in ORSPUBHP, a variable that encompasses all public health posts as a source for ORS. IPUMS-DHS users are encouraged to review the Description tab of ORSBF3 or the Comparability tab of ORSPUBHP for more information on the specific categories combined for Burkina Faso 1993.
