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 children with diarrhea in the past 2 weeks, DIATRBD12 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 "DIATR" 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.
DIATRBD12 is combined with DIATRBD11 (government health center) in DIATRPUBHC (all public health centers) for the 2000 Bangladesh sample. Additionally, DIATRBD12 is combined with DIATRBD11 and DIATRBD13 (health and family welfare center) for the 2004 Bangladesh sample, while DIATRBD12 is combined with DIATRBD13 in DIATRPUBHC for the 2007, 2011, and 2014 Bangladesh samples.
IPUMS-DHS users interested in using DIATRBD12 are encouraged to review DIATRPUBHC for a more comprehensive response category.
