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.
ATMG6 indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, the woman reported a private doctor as a place to be tested for the AIDS virus. This response category is country-specific to Madagascar.
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.
ATMG6 is combined with ATMG5 (private hospital/clinic) in ATPRIVHOS (private hospital, clinic, or doctor) for the 2003 and 2008 Madagascar samples. IPUMS-DHS users interested in using ATMG6 are encouraged to review ATPRIVHOS for a more comprehensive response category.
