For women who are not currently using a method of contraception, FPNONPRIVDR (V3A00L) indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, they reported a "private doctor" as a source of family planning.
Some samples in the "FPNON" 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.
For example, a given sample might include multiple categories for different types of private doctors that could be combined to create a more comprehensive response category. See Comparability for more information on the specific categories combined in this variable.
