Comparability

Apart from universe differences, ELECFAN is comparable across most samples. Most commonly, the survey asked, "Does your household have an electric fan/a fan?" Samples with significantly different wording are discussed below.

The information in ELECFAN is taken from the household record, linked to the record of the woman respondent. This information applies to household residents, not temporary visitors, so researchers may wish to exclude visitors using the RESIDENT variable (with visitors coded "2").

Comparability - Standard DHS

ELECFAN is a country-specific variable not included in the standard DHS questionnaire.

Comparability — Afghanistan [top]

The 2015 Afghanistan survey asked whether the household had "a stand phone," presumably to distinguish this item from a ceiling fan.

Comparability — Benin [top]

The 2006 Beninese survey asked whether the household owned a "cooling fan."

Comparability — Egypt [top]

The 1988 Egyptian survey form asked "Are any of the following appliances found in the dwelling unit: An electric fan?" The remaining Egyptian surveys use the standard wording noted above.

Comparability — India [top]

The 1992 and 1998 Indian surveys ask whether the household owned a fan/electric fan. The 2005 and 2015 Indian surveys used the standard wording about having an electric fan, which could also encompass renting or borrowing such an appliance.

Comparability — Nigeria [top]

The 2008 Nigerian survey asked, "Does your family have the following items which are in good working order: A fan?" The other Nigerian surveys use the standard wording noted above.

Comparability — Yemen [top]

The 1991 Yemen survey asked whether an electric fan was present in the dwelling. The 2013 Yemen survey asked whether any household member owned an electric fan.
