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, STIADPRIVMIS indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, they reported seeking advice or treatment from a faith-based health facility for this problem.
Some samples in the "STIAD" 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.
For example, a given sample might include multiple categories for different types of faith-based facilities that could be combined to create a more comprehensive response category. See Comparability for more information on the specific categories combined in STIADPRIVMIS.
