DISIMPLIMBHH indicates whether any member of the household has impairment of the limbs.

Comparability — Index



Along with universe differences, DISIMPLIMBHH differs across samples in question wording and response categories.

To maximize comparability across samples, IPUMS-DHS uses composite coding. All affirmative responses share a common first digit of "1"; trailing digits provide additional detail only sometimes available (e.g., "Both hands and legs impaired" coded "13").

Comparability - Standard DHS

DISIMPLIMBHH is a country-specific variable, and it is not included in any phase of the standard DHS questionnaire.
