For women who gave birth in the 5 years before the survey and who received a health check after delivering their child, DELPPCHKBTIM_ALL (M51_x) reports the timing of their postpartum health check in hours, days or weeks.
DELPPCHKBTIM_ALL consists of a set of six separate variables, covering the most recent birth (DELPPCHKBTIM_01) up to the sixth-most-recent birth (i.e., DELPPCHKBTIM_02, DELPPCHKBTIM_03, DELPPCHKBTIM_04, DELPPCHKBTIM_05, and DELPPCHKBTIM_06) during the reference period prior to the survey. If DELPPCHKBTIM_ALL is included in a data extract, all these separate variables are included in a researcher's data file.
Most surveys collected this information for only the most recent birth (DELPPCHKBTIM_01). Surveys in which the data were collected for additional births are noted in the comparability section.
The related variable DELPPCHKB_ALL (M50_x) indicates whether the woman received a postpartum health check.
