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, FPNONZW6 indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, they reported some "other" retail outlet as a source of family planning. The meaning of "other" depends on the specific categories included in a given sample. 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.
FPNONZW6 is combined with FPNONZW2 (general dealer), FPNONZW3 (service station), FPNONZW4 (supermarket), and FPNONZW5 (tuck shop) in FPNONSHOP for the Zimbabwean samples. IPUMS-DHS users interested in using FPNONZW6 are encouraged to review FPNONSHOP for a more comprehensive response category.
