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 five years preceding the survey, DELPK8 indicates whether a midwife assisted with the child's delivery. This response category is country-specific to Pakistan.
Some samples in the "DEL" 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.
DELPK8 is combined with DELPK1 (nurse) for the 2017 Pakistan sample to create the standard variable DELNURM. IPUMS-DHS users interested in using DELPK8 are encouraged to review DELNURM for this more comprehensive response category.
