H32 variable labels in Gabon DHS 2012 dataset (source of care attended for fever/cough) are general and do not match the response categories in questionnaire.
Could you please help me match the questionnaire response categories to the correct dataset variable? See below.

Q534 response categories (dataset variable)
Public sector hospital/health center = A (H32A variable, correct?)
Public dispensary = B (is this H32b labelled cs public sector?)
SMI Center = C (is this H32c?)
Military infirmary = D (which H32 variable?)
Case de sante = E (???)
Hospital pharmacy = F (???)
Other public = G (???)

CNSS private sector hospital = H (is this H32J?)
CNSS medical center = I (???)
CNSS Pharmacy = J (is this H32K?)
Private medical clinic = K (???)
Private doctor = L (is this H32L?)
Infirmary = M (???)
Pharmacy = N (???)
Other private medical = O (???)
Nganga/Marab = P (???)
Shop/market = Q (???)
Other = X (???)

I also want to thank you for this user forum, which is incredibly useful and fills a great need. One comment is that it would be useful if we could receive an email notification when there are responses to our posts. Otherwise, I forget to come back to the site to check. There may also be unexpected messages from other users interested in the same topic. For example, I will likely not come back to this post now that I have received a response, and could therefore miss future posts by other users if that were to occur. Obviously, not many people interested in the H32 variable in Gabon dataset, but for a more popular topics that could be an issue.

Hope this comment is helpful! I really want to make this forum as user friendly as possible since it is such a great idea!

Is there a place to post comments or feedback (like this one) on the functionality of the user forum more generally?

Hi Emily, Thanks for the comments. There is a checkbox in the form when you first create a message that says "Post Notification" which, if checked, will send an email to you when someone posts a reply to your message. Also, if you want to be informed anytime someone posts a message in a particular topic area.. just click the "subscribe" link in upper left menu area.

If you would like to post further suggestions, you can post them anywhere but it might make sense for us to create a new topic specifically for suggestions. We will discuss this.

Hope this helps.


We now have repositories of code written in Stata and SPSS available on Github. Please reference these code repositories as a resource for code for matching or calculating DHS indicators. The code repositories can be found at:
