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, FPNONMG3 indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, they reported a level I government health center as a source of family planning in response. This response category is country-specific to Madagascar.
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.
FPNONMG3 is combined with FPNONMG4 (level II government health center) in FPNONPUBHC for the Madagascar samples. IPUMS-DHS users interested in using FPNONMG3 are encouraged to review FPNONPUBHC for a more comprehensive response category.
