HCMPRIVDRUG (V762AK) indicates whether the woman reported a private pharmacy, drug store, or dispensary as a source for male condoms.
Some samples in the "HCM" 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, formal drug sources that could be combined to create a more comprehensive response category. See Comparability for more information on the specific categories combined in HCMPRIVDRUG.
