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 with a fever or cough in the past 2 weeks, FEVTRPK9 indicates, in response to an open-ended question, whether the child received treatment from a public (rural) health center or maternal and child health (MCH) center. This response category is country-specific to Pakistan.
Some samples in the "FEVTR" 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.
For the 2006, 2012, and 2017 Pakistan samples, FEVTRPK9 is combined with FEVTRPK10 (basic health unit/family welfare center) in FEVTRPUBHC (all public health centers).
IPUMS-DHS users interested in using FEVTRPK9 are encouraged to review FEVTRPUBHC for a more comprehensive response category for these two samples.
