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 women who had symptoms of a sexually transmitted infection in the past 12 months, STIADPUBOTH indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, they reported seeking advice or treatment from some "other" public medical facility for this problem. The meaning of "other" depends on the specific response categories included in a given sample.
Users should be careful to distinguish this variable from STIADPRIVOTH ("other" under the private medical sector) and STIADOTHER ("other" not under either the private or the public medical sector).
