Haiti treatment sources: more detail on country-specific labels? [message #16687] Sun, 17 February 2019 18:09

Hi All,

I am attempting to use variables h12a-h12x and h32a-h32x in Haiti to look at treatment sources for ill children. However, the newest 2016-17 data set for Haiti has a large number of generic variable labels denoting country-specific categories ("cs public sector", "cs private medical," and "cs other sector"). The most common treatment source for diarrhea is h12b and it has the generic "cs public sector" label. Is there any way to back out what's behind these country-specific labels? (I was expecting a Word document offering more detail on the data in the zip file, but didn't see one). Ideally, I would be able to isolate CHWs from public facilities or private shop from other private facilities, for example.

Thank you,
