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 gave birth in the last three to five years, DELML3_01 indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, they reported a midwife gave delivery care (for the last birth). This response category is country-specific to Mali.
Some samples in the "DEL" 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.
DELML3_01 is combined with DELML1_01 (obstetrics nurse) and DELML2_01 (other nurse) for the 2006 Mali sample to create the standard variable DELNURM_01. IPUMS-DHS users interested in using DELML3_01 are encouraged to review DELNURM_01 for this more comprehensive response category.
