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, FPNONMW4 indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, they reported a "mission hospital" as a source of family planning. This response category is country-specific to Malawi.
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.
FPNONMW4 is combined with FPNONMW5 (mission health center) and FPNONMW6 (mission mobile clinic) in FPNONPRIVMIS for the Malawi samples. IPUMS-DHS users interested in using FPNONMW4 are encouraged to review FPNONPRIVMIS for a more comprehensive response category.
