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, STIADPUBFW indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, they reported seeking advice or treatment from a public fieldworker 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.
IPUMS-DHS users should be careful to distinguish this variable from STIADPRIVFW (private fieldworker).
