HCHHBFEED indicates whether a member of the household received health care from a health facility in the past 12 months, in the form of information on breastfeeding and other infant feeding practices.

The information in HCHHBFEED 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.


HCHHBFEED has no comparability problems.
