Codes and Frequencies
TBCARENP6 indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, the respondent reported she would prefer to seek care at some other NGO facility if she had tuberculosis. The meaning of "other" must be interpreted relative to the specific categories included in a particular sample. 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.
TBCARENP6 is combined with TBCARENP4 (FPAN) and TBCARENP5 (Marie Stopes) in TBCARENGO (all NGOs) for the 2016 Nepal sample. IPUMS-DHS users interested in using TBCARENP6 are encouraged to review TBCARENGO for a more comprehensive response category.
TBCARENP6 has no comparability problems.
Comparability - Standard DHS
TBCARENP6 is a country-specific variable, and it is not included in any phase of the standard DHS questionnaire.
Although TBCARENP6 is a country-specific response, this variable is combined with other responses in TBCARENGO, a variable that encompasses all NGOs as potential sources of tuberculosis treatment. IPUMS-DHS users are encouraged to review the Description tab of TBCARENP6 or the Comparability tab of TBCARENGO for more information on the specific categories combined for Nepal 2016.
