CHHEDREADEVENT indicates whether any household member helped the child selected for the child education module (CHHEDKIDLINENO) learn in the past week by taking that child to a reading event.

The information in CHHEDREADEVENT 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.


CHHEDREADEVENT has no comparability problems.
