CHLHHABSENT indicates whether the child household member selected for the child labor module (CHLHHINDEX) has a job from which he or she was absent in the past week.

The information in CHLHHABSENT is taken from the household record and applies to regular household residents, 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.


CHLHHABSENT has no comparability problems.

Comparability - Standard DHS

CHLHHABSENT is a country-specific variable, and it is not included in any phase of the standard DHS questionnaire or child labor module.
