Comparability — Index



CHAIRNUM has no comparability problems.

The information in CHAIRNUM 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").

CHAIRNUM is a country-specific variable not included in the standard DHS household questionnaire.
