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 young children with a fever or cough in the past 2 to 4 weeks, FEVGIVCOUSYR indicates whether the child was given cough syrup.
A few samples ask separately about drugs taken for fever and drugs taken for cough. IPUMS-DHS uses supplemental programming to combine these responses in a standard variable while preserving the separate responses in composite coding. A first digit of 1 indicates the child received the drug, and the second digit indicates the child's illness:
11: The child was given the drug for a fever
12: The child was given the drug for a cough
13: The child was given the drug for a fever or a cough
14: The child was given the drug for both a fever and a cough
15: The child was given the drug for a fever or convulsions
16: The child was given the drug for a fever or difficult/rapid breathing
