Description

For women who had symptoms of a sexually transmitted infection in the past 12 months, STIADBJ5 indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, they reported seeking advice or treatment from a public community health worker for this problem. This response category is country-specific to Benin.

Some samples in the "STIAD" 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.

STIADBJ5 is combined with STIADBJ3 (public fieldworker) and STIADBJ4 (public health worker) in STIADPUBFW (all public fieldworkers) for the 2006 and 2011 Benin samples. IPUMS-DHS users interested in using STIADBJ5 are encouraged to review STIADPUBFW for a more comprehensive response category.

Comparability

STIADBJ5 has no comparability problems.

Comparability - Standard DHS

An open-ended question about where the woman received advice/treatment for an STI is included in Phases III, V and VI forward of the standard DHS questionnaire.

Though STIADBJ5 is a country-specific response not included in the standard DHS modules, it is combined with other responses in STIADPUBFW, a standard variable that encompasses all public fieldworkers as sources for STI advice/treatment. IPUMS-DHS users are encouraged to review the Description tab of STIADBJ5 or the Comparability tab of STIADPUBFW for more information on the specific categories combined for the Benin samples.
