For women who had symptoms of a sexually transmitted infection in the past 12 months, STIADBJ9 indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, they reported seeking advice or treatment from a "bar" for this problem. This response category is country-specific to Benin.


STIADBJ9 has no comparability problems.

For Benin 2011, the survey form does not designate a response category for "bar." This variable was probably made after many respondents mentioned "bar" in the "other" response category.
