Warning: these figures indicate the number of cases found in the data file. They cannot be interpreted as summary statistics of the population of interest.
For women who are not currently using a contraceptive method, FPNONZW2 indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, they reported a "general dealer" retail outlet as a source of family planning. This response category is country-specific to Zimbabwe.
Some samples in the "FPNON" 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.
FPNONZW2 is combined with FPNONZW3 (service station), FPNONZW4 (supermarket), FPNONZW5 (tuck shop), and FPNONZW6 (other retail source) in FPNONSHOP for the Zimbabwean samples. IPUMS-DHS users interested in using FPNONZW2 are encouraged to review FPNONSHOP for a more comprehensive response category.
