Warning: these figures indicate the number of cases found in the data file. They cannot be interpreted as summary statistics of the population of interest.
For women who gave birth in the last three to five years, DELBD4_ALL indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, they reported a medical assistant (MA) or sub-assistant community medical officer (SACMO) gave delivery care for a recent birth. This response category is country-specific to Bangladesh.
DELBD4_ALL consists of a set of up to six separate variables, covering the most recent birth (DELBD4_01) up to the sixth-most-recent birth (i.e., DELBD4_02, DELBD4_03, DELBD4_04, DELBD4_05, and DELBD4_06) during the reference period prior to the survey. If DELBD4_ALL is included in a data extract, all these separate variables are included in a researcher's data file.
