HCMMW1 indicates whether the woman reported a "mission hospital" as a source for male condoms. This response category is country-specific to Malawi.
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.
HCMMW1 is combined with HCMMW2 (mission health center), HCMMW3 (mission mobile clinic), and HCMMW9 (mission door-to-door) in HCMPRIVMIS (all faith-based health facilities) for the 2010 Malawi sample.
Additionally, HCMMW1 is combined with HCMMW2 and HCMMW3 in HCMPRIVMIS for the 2000 and 2004 Malawi samples.
IPUMS-DHS users interested in using HCMMW1 are encouraged to review HCMPRIVMIS for a more comprehensive response category.
