CHHEDGETBOOK indicates whether any household member helped the child selected for the child education module (CHHEDKIDLINENO) learn in the past week by buying or borrowing books for that child to read.

The information in CHHEDGETBOOK is taken from the household record and applies to regular household members, not temporary visitors. Researchers may wish to exclude visitors using the RESIDENT variable (with visitors coded "2") when women, children, or births are the unit of analysis, and using the HHRESIDENT variable when household members are the unit of analysis.


CHHEDGETBOOK has no comparability problems.
