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 children born in the three to five years preceding the survey, DELNURM (M3B) indicates whether a nurse or midwife (categories combined or not distinguished) assisted with the child's delivery.
Some samples in the "DEL" 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 DELNURM, while preserving the separate responses in country-specific variables.
For example, a given sample might include separate categories for nurse and midwife that could be combined to create a more comprehensive response category. See Comparability for more information on the specific categories in this variable.
