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 young children with a fever or cough in the past 2 weeks, FEVTRPUBOTH (H32I) indicates, in response to an open-ended question, whether the child received treatment at some "other" public sector source for this illness. The meaning of "other" varies depending on the specific categories included in a given sample.
A few samples ask separately about treatment given for fever and treatment given for cough. IPUMS-DHS uses supplemental programming to combine these responses in a standard variable while preserving the separate responses in composite coding. A first digit of 1 indicates the child received treatment from a given source, and the second digit indicates the child's illness. A code of "11" indicates the child received treatment for a fever; a code of "12" indicates the child received treatment for a cough; a code of "13" indicates the child received treatment for a fever or a cough; a code of "14" indicates the child received treatment for both a fever and a cough; a code of "15" indicates the child received treatment for a cough and convulsions; a code of "16" indicates the child received treatment for convulsions; and a code of "17" indicates the child received treatment for a fever or rapid/difficult breathing. See Comparability for more information.
IPUMS-DHS users should be careful to distinguish FEVTRPUBOTH from FEVTRPRIVOTH ("other" under the private medical sector) and FEVTROTHER ("other" that is not described as under either the public or the private medical sector).
