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.
HCMMG1 indicates whether the woman reported a "level I government hospital" as a source for male condoms. This response category is country-specific to Madagascar.
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.
HCMMG1 is combined with HCMMG2 (level II government hospital) in HCMPUBHOS (all public hospitals) for the 2008 Madagascar sample. IPUMS-DHS users interested in using HCMMG1 are encouraged to review HCMPUBHOS for a more comprehensive response category.
