For children with a fever or cough in the past 2 weeks, FEVTRBD12 indicates, in response to an open-ended question, whether the child received treatment from a public maternal and child welfare center. 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.
FEVTRBD12 is combined with FEVTRBD11 (government health center) in FEVTRPUBHC (all public health centers) for the 2000 Bangladesh sample. Additionally, FEVTRBD12 is combined with FEVTRBD11 and FEVTRBD13 (health and family welfare center) for the 2004, 2007, 2011, and 2014 Bangladesh samples.
IPUMS-DHS users interested in using FEVTRBD12 are encouraged to review FEVTRPUBHC for a more comprehensive response category.
