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.
ATCM1 indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, the woman reported a private secular hospital/clinic as a source for testing for the AIDS virus. This response category is country-specific to Cameroon.
Some samples in the "AT" series include multiple categories that can be consolidated into a single broad response. IPUMS-DHS uses supplemental programming to combine these responses in a standard variable, while also preserving the separate responses in country-specific variables.
ATCM1 is combined with ATCM2 (private doctor) in ATPRIVHOS (private hospital, clinic, or doctor) for the 2011 Cameroon sample. IPUMS-DHS users interested in using ATCM1 are encouraged to review ATPRIVHOS for a more comprehensive response category.
