I am interested in finding a measure of distance to health facility, besides the V467D which I will use as perceived distance. Is there any question to address this?

Dear User,
I checked our standard questionnaires for the current phase and the previous phase. I did not see any other variable(s)that when recoded would give you the information you are seeking. If a question like that was ever asked, it would have to be country specific in the particular survey you are looking at. In those cases the variable would start with the letter S and be named similar to the raw variable in the questionnaire (if asked). The documentation file (distributed when you download the data) for each survey should give you a list of all the country-specific variables. I checked the Uganda AIS 2011 and the Uganda DHS 2011. There were no additional variables regarding distance to a health facility. Is there a particular survey you are interested in?
Thank you!
