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.
HCMMG3 indicates whether the woman reported a level I government health center 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.
HCMMG3 is combined with HCMMG4 (level II government health center) in HCMPUBHC (public health centers and health posts) for the 2008 Madagascar sample. IPUMS-DHS users interested in using HCMMG3 are encouraged to review HCMPUBHC for a more comprehensive response category.
