CASHASSISTYN indicates whether the household ever received any cash assistance from either a government or non-governmental organization.

IPUMS-DHS users interested in using CASHASSISTYN may also be interested in CASHASSISTSRC, a related variable that reports the source of this assistance.

The information in CASHASSISTYN is taken from the household record, linked to the record of the woman respondent. This information applies to household residents, not temporary visitors, so researchers may wish to exclude visitors using the RESIDENT variable (with visitors coded "2").


CASHASSISTYN has no comparability problems.
