Description

For women who had symptoms of a sexually transmitted infection in the past 12 months, STIADNGO indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, they reported seeking advice or treatment from a non-governmental organization (NGO) for this problem.

Some samples in the "STIAD" 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.

Comparability

Along with universe differences, STIADNGO varies slightly in question wording. STIADNGO is ultimately concerned with whether the woman mentioned any NGO facility as a source of treatment, rather than the specific type of NGO. Countries of particular interest, with distinctive wording, are noted below.

Additionally, samples vary in how they asked about sexually transmitted infections. For example, surveys in Phase V forward generally asked whether the woman had any STI, a genital sore/ulcer, and a genital discharge. In Phase III, the surveys mentioned additional infections. Due to this variation, researchers are encouraged to review the Survey Text tab for samples of interest.

Comparability - Standard DHS

An open-ended question about where the woman sought treatment for symptoms of an STI is included in Phases III, V, and VI of the Standard DHS questionnaire.

Although responses in this variable are country-specific and not included in the standard DHS module, they are integrated in STIADNGO to increase comparability across samples.
