In terms of the numerator: What variables in the Child Recode Dataset constitute the "health facility"

In terms of the denominator: What are the variables will help me determine which children have ARI

Just to note, I am using Stata and I have already set it up for a weighted analysis]]>

* Intialize ARI variable - only for living children gen ari=0 if b5==1 * ARI is defined as children with a cough with short rapid breaths (h31b==1) and congestion in the chest (h31c==1 | h31c==3) replace ari=1 if b5==1 & h31b==1 & (h31c==1 | h31c==3)

The denominator is all living children (b5==1).

For children with ARI taken to a health facility the denominator are those children with ARI from above. The numerator is those take to a public or private health facility, except for pharmacies, shops, traditional healers and other non-medical facilities. See the code below:

gen ari_treat = 0 if ari==1 * All public or private facilities, except for pharmacies (g & k) and shops (s), traditional healers (t) and other non-medical facilities (u-x) foreach x in a b c d e f h i j l m n o p q r { replace ari_treat = 1 if ari==1 & h32`x'==1 }

[Note that the above is just a condensed form of

replace ari_treat = 1 if ari==1 & (h32a==1 | h32b==1 | h32c==1 ... h32r==1)

excluding h32g and h32k]

Note that the list of variables included can vary from country to country, but generally follows the list above.]]>
