ATZW1 indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, the woman reported a public central hospital as a place to be tested for the AIDS virus. This response category is country-specific to Zimbabwe.
Some samples in the "AT" 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.
ATZW1 is combined with ATZW2 (public provincial hospital) and ATZW3 (public district/rural hospital) in ATPUBHOS (all public hospitals) for the 2005 Zimbabwe sample.
Additionally, Zimbabwe 2010 separates public district and public rural hospital into two distinct response categories. As a result, ATZW1 is combined with ATZW2, ATZW4 (public district hospital), and ATZW5 (public rural hospital in ATPUBHOS (all public hospitals) for the 2010 Zimbabwe sample. IPUMS-DHS users interested in using ATZW1 are encouraged to review ATPUBHOS for a more comprehensive response category.
