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.
ATPUBFW (V784F) indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, the woman reported a private field worker as a source for testing for the AIDS virus.
Some samples in the "AT" 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 ATPUBFW while preserving the separate responses in country-specific variables. See Comparability for more information on the specific categories combined in this variable.
IPUMS-DHS users should be careful to distinguish ATPUBFW from ATPRIVFW (private fieldworker).
