HHCANCERDIEDYN indicates whether any (former) member of the household had died from cancer (in the past 3 years).

The information in HHCANCERDIEDYN 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.


HHCANCERDIEDYN has no comparability problems.
