Codes and Frequencies
For women who had symptoms of a sexually transmitted infection in the past 12 months, STIADTD3 indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, they reported seeking advice or treatment from a public polyclinic for this problem. This response category is country-specific to Chad.
Apart from universe differences and slight differences in question wording, STIADTD3 has no comparability problems.
