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, FPNONZW3 indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, they reported a "service station" 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.
FPNONZW3 is combined with FPNONZW2 (general dealer), FPNONZW4 (supermarket), FPNONZW5 (tuck shop), and FPNONZW6 (other retail source) in FPNONSHOP for the Zimbabwean samples. IPUMS-DHS users interested in using FPNONZW3 are encouraged to review FPNONSHOP for a more comprehensive response category.
