Codes and Frequencies
TBCARENP2 indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, the respondent reported she would prefer to seek care at a private hospital or nursing home if she had tuberculosis. This response category is country-specific to Nepal.
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 while preserving the separate responses in country-specific variables.
TBCARENP2 is combined with TBCARENP3 (private clinic) in TBCAREPRIVHOS (all private hospitals and clinics) for the 2016 Nepal sample. IPUMS-DHS users interested in using TBCARENP2 are encouraged to review TBCAREPRIVHOS for a more comprehensive response category.
TBCARENP2 has no comparability problems.
Comparability - Standard DHS
TBCARENP2 is a country-specific variable, and it is not included in any phase of the standard DHS questionnaire.
Although TBCARENP2 is a country-specific response, this variable is combined with other responses in TBCAREPRIVHOS, a variable that encompasses all private hospitals and clinics as potential sources of tuberculosis treatment. IPUMS-DHS users are encouraged to review the Description tab of TBCARENP2 or the Comparability tab of TBCAREPRIVHOS for more information on the specific categories combined for Nepal 2016.
