TBCARENGO indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, the female respondent reported she would prefer to seek care at an NGO if she had tuberculosis.

Some samples in the "TBCARE" series include categories that can be consolidated into a single response. IPUMS-DHS uses supplemental programming to combine these responses in a standard variable, such as TBCARENGO, while preserving the separate responses in country-specific variables. See Comparability for more information on the specific categories combined in TBCARENGO.

TBCARENGO has no comparability problems.

Comparability - Standard DHS

TBCARENGO is a country-specific variable, and it is not included in any phase of the standard DHS questionnaire.

Comparability — Nepal [top]

For the 2016 Nepal survey, there are separate categories for "FPAN," "Marie Stopes," and "Other NGO facilities." Because TBCARENGO focuses on all NGOs, these three responses are consolidated in that variable to create a more comprehensive response category. For researchers interested in preserving these country-specific categories:

  • FPAN is listed as TBCARENP4 in IPUMS-DHS
  • Marie Stopes is listed as TBCARENP5 in IPUMS-DHS
  • Other NGO is listed as TBCARENP6 in IPUMS-DHS


  • Nepal 2016: All women age 15-49.
