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 born in the three to five years preceding the survey, DELCI1 indicates whether a nurse assisted with the child's delivery. This response category is country-specific to Cote d'Ivoire.
Some samples in the "DEL" 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.
DELCI1 is combined with DELCI2 (midwife) for the 1994 and 1998 Cote d'Ivoire samples to create the standard variable DELNURM. IPUMS-DHS users interested in using DELCI1 are encouraged to review DELNURM for this more comprehensive response category.
