HCFZW8 indicates whether the woman reported a "retail service station" as a source for female condoms. This response category is country-specific to Zimbabwe.
Some samples in the "HCF" series include categories that can be consolidated into a single response. IPUMS-DHS uses supplemental programming to combine these responses in a standard variable while preserving the separate responses in country-specific variables.
HCFZW8 is combined with HCFZW10 (supermarket), HCFZW9 (tuck shop), HCFZW6 (general dealer), and HCFZW11 (other retail) in HCFSHOP (all shops/retailers) for the 2010 Zimbabwe sample.
Additionally, HCFZW8 is combined with HCFZW12 (supermarket/tuck shop), HCFZW13 (bottle store/bar), and HCFZW6 (general dealer) in HCFSHOP in the Zimbabwe 2015 sample.
IPUMS-DHS users interested in using HCFZW8 are encouraged to review HCFSHOP for a more comprehensive response category.
