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, STIADCM5 indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, they reported seeking advice or treatment from a clinic, hospital, or private doctor for this problem. This response is country-specific to Cameroon.
IPUMS-DHS users should be careful to distinguish this variable from STIADCLINYN, which indicates whether the woman reported treatment from a clinic, hospital or private doctor in response to a closed-ended question.
