Description

For women who had symptoms of a sexually transmitted infection in the past 12 months, STIADMG4 indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, they reported seeking advice or treatment from a level II government hospital for this problem. This response category is country-specific to Madagascar.

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.

STIADMG4 is combined with STIADMG3 (level I government hospital) in STIADPUBHOS (all public hospitals) for the 2008 Madagascar sample. IPUMS-DHS users interested in using STIADMG4 are encouraged to review STIADPUBHOS for a more comprehensive response category.

Comparability

STIADMG4 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 STIADMG4 is a country-specific response not included in the standard DHS modules, it is combined with other responses in STIADPUBHOS, a standard variable that encompasses all public hospitals as sources for STI advice/treatment. IPUMS-DHS users are encouraged to review the Description tab of STIADMG4 or the Comparability tab of STIADPUBHOS for more information on the specific categories combined for the Madagascar samples.
