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.
HCMPUBFPC (V762AC) indicates whether the woman reported a public family planning clinic or association as a source for male condoms.
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, such as HCMPUBFPC, while preserving the separate responses in country-specific variables.
IPUMS-DHS users should be careful to distinguish this variable from HCMPRIVFPC (private family planning clinic or association).
