CHHEDTIMETOSCHL reports how many minutes it takes for the child selected for the child education module (CHHEDKIDLINENO) to travel to school.

The related variable CHHEDGETOSCHL reports the means of transportation the child uses to travel to school. Users should note that the means of transportation (walking, motorbike, etc.) may play a significant role in determining the time it takes the child to get to school.

The information in CHHEDTIMETOSCHL 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.
