Codes and Frequencies
HCHHANYPAYOTH indicates whether some other source paid the fees for household members' health care. The meaning of "other" depends on the particular payment sources specified in a given sample.
The information in HCHHANYPAYOTH 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.
