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.
HCFMW3 indicates whether the woman reported a "mission hospital" as a source for female condoms. This response category is country-specific to Malawi.
Some samples in the "HCF" 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.
HCFMW3 is combined with HCFMW2 (mission health center), HCFMW4 (mission mobile clinic), and HCFMW9 (mission door-to-door) in HCFPRIVMIS (all faith-based facilities) for the 2010 Malawi sample.
Additionally, HCFMW3 is combined with HCFMW2 and HCFMW4 in HCMPRIVMIS for the 2000 and 2004 Malawi samples.
IPUMS-DHS users interested in using HCFMW3 are encouraged to review HCFPRIVMIS for a more comprehensive response category.
