Specific value IF statement

I want to be able to make an IF statement based on the value of the field entered in the cms.
The field I have is a drop down, so it's controllable to an extent.

I currently have a filedataobjectmanager where one of the values is a catogory.
I've then got a jqury filtering system setup where the files are filtered by download categories.

What I want to acheive is to only show the filter button for file types which are there, so I never have an empty area.

I'm thinking something along these lines:

<ul id="downloads-menu">
	<li class="title">Select Type</li>
		<li class="current"><a href="#nogo">All</a></li>
		<% if Category(financial-information) %><li><a href="#nogo">Financial Information</a></li><% end_if %>
		<% if Category(management-information)  %><li><a href="#nogo">Management Information</a></li><% end_if %>
		<% if Category(uk-specific)  %><li><a href="#nogo">UK Specific</a></li><% end_if %>

How would I acheive this. I know "<% if Category(uk-specific) %>" doesn't work - but what will?

Cheers! :D
