I am currently reforming variables in Stata for an analysis of childhood mortality rates in a range of Sub-Saharan African countries.

I would like one of my variable to represent 'place of delivery'. To make things simple, I am hoping to create a dummy that equals 1 when delivery occurred in a medical facility and 0 if not. In order to classify what is considered a medical facility, I was wondering whether there was a link or whether you could put me in the right direction to get definitions for:

- govt. health post
- government dispensary
- government health centre , so as to see whether these should be classified as medical or not.
