For children with a fever or cough in the past 2 weeks, FEVTRBD1 indicates, in response to an open-ended question, whether the child received treatment from a nongovernmental organization (NGO) static clinic. This response category is country-specific to Bangladesh.
Some samples in the "FEVTR" series include multiple categories that can be consolidated into a single broad response. IPUMS-DHS uses supplemental programming to combine these responses in a standard variable, while also preserving the separate responses in country-specific variables.
For the 2011 and 2014 Bangladesh samples, FEVTRBD1 is combined with FEVTRBD2 (NGO satellite clinic), FEVTRBD3 (NGO fieldworker), FEVTRBD4 (NGO depot holder), and FEVTRBD5 (Other NGO) in FEVTRNGO (all nongovernmental organizations).
Additionally, in the 2007 Bangladesh sample, FEVTRBD1 is combined with FEVTRBD2, FEVTRBD3, and FEVTRBD5; while for the 2000 and 2004 Bangladesh samples, FEVTRBD1 is combined with FEVTRBD2 and FEVTRBD3 in FEVTRNGO.
IPUMS-DHS users interested in using FEVTRBD1 are encouraged to review FEVTRNGO for a more comprehensive response category.
