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