For young children with a fever or cough in the past 2 weeks, FEVTRCI4 indicates, in response to an open-ended question, whether the child received treatment at a private pharmacy depot for this illness. This response category is country-specific to Cote d'Ivoire.
Some samples in the "FEVTR" series include categories that can be consolidated into a single response. IPUMS-DHS uses supplemental programming to combine these responses in a standard variable while preserving the separate responses in country-specific variables.
FEVTRCI4 is combined with FEVTRCI3 (private pharmacy) in FEVTRPRIVDRUG (all private, formal drug sources) for the 1994 Cote d'Ivoire sample. IPUMS-DHS users interested in using FEVTRCI4 are encouraged to review FEVTRPRIVDRUG for a more comprehensive response category.
