ANCAREMG2 indicates whether a midwife gave the child's mother antenatal care while the child was in utero. This response category is country-specific to Madagascar.
Some samples in the "ANCARE" series include multiple categories that can be consolidated into a single broad response. IPUMS-DHS uses supplemental programming to combine these responses in a standard variable, while also preserving the separate responses in country-specific variables.
ANCAREMG2 is combined with ANCAREMG1 (nurse) for the 1992 and 1997 Madagascar samples to create the standard variable ANCARENURM. IPUMS-DHS users interested in using ANCAREMG2 are encouraged to review ANCARENURM for this more comprehensive response category.
