ABORTPLACE reports the type of medical facility or other place (such as at home) where the respondent had her most recent abortion performed.
The harmonized coding categories in the IPUMS-DHS variable ABORTPLACE 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 ABORTPLACE's codes distinguish between specific locations and provide additional detail, if available.
