ABORTCOMPTRPLACE reports the type of medical facility or other place (such as at home) where the respondent sought treatment for complications from her most recent abortion.
The harmonized coding categories in the IPUMS-DHS variable ABORTCOMPTRPLACE were constructed to reflect the major and minor categories in the original DHS variable. The major categories are:
1000: Public sector facilities
2000: Private medical sector facilities
3000: Non-governmental organizations (NGOs)
The second, third, and fourth digits of ABORTCOMPTRPLACE's codes distinguish between specific locations and provide additional detail, if available.
