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.
HCMZW6 indicates whether the woman reported some "other retailer" as a source for male condoms. This response category is country-specific to Zimbabwe.
Some samples in the "HCM" 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.
HCMZW6 is combined with HCMZW11 (general dealer), HCMZW12 (supermarket), HCMZW13 (tuck shop), and HCMZW5 (service station) in HCMSHOP (all shops/retailers) for the 2010 Zimbabwe sample.
