Survey on the Choice and Perception of Quality in Rural Health Institutions, Mbonge Subdivision, Southwest Province, Cameroun (ICPSR 1138)
Principal Investigator(s): Ndeso-Atanga, Sylvester, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine; Leonard, Kenneth L., Columbia University
This study contains data on the behavior of randomly-chosen households when faced with illness. The focus was on providers visited for diseases within a one-month recall period. The data contain information on individuals, households, distances traveled, and fees paid. Also, people were asked in general about their use of government and mission clinics, vaccination habits, and ante-natal and childbirth habits. Included are quantitative data on the nature of the disease episode facing the patient.
These data are flagged as replication datasets and are distributed exactly as they arrived from the data depositor. ICPSR has not checked or processed this material. Users should consult the investigator(s) if further information is desired.
The public-use data files in this collection are available for access by the general public. Access does not require affiliation with an ICPSR member institution.
