Description

GENERATYN indicates whether the household has a generator. The complementary variable, GENERATNUM, indicates the number of generators owned by the household.

The information in GENERATYN 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 when women, children, or births are the unit of analysis, and using the HHRESIDENT variable when household members are the unit of analysis.
