TBCAREPRIVHOS indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, the respondent reported she would prefer to seek care at a private hospital or clinic 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 TBCAREPRIVHOS, while preserving the separate responses in country-specific variables. See Comparability for more information on the specific categories combined in TBCAREPRIVHOS.

Comparability - Standard DHS

TBCAREPRIVHOS 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 "Private hospital/nursing home" and "Private clinic." Because TBCAREPRIVHOS focuses on private hospitals and clinics, these two responses are consolidated in that variable to create a more comprehensive response category. For researchers interested in preserving these country-specific categories:

  • Private hospital/nursing home is listed as TBCARENP2 in IPUMS-DHS
  • Private clinic is listed as TBCARENP3 in IPUMS-DHS


  • Nepal 2016: All women age 15-49.
