Description

INSHHANYOTH indicates whether any member of the household is covered by some other form of health insurance. The meaning of "other" must be interpreted relative to the specific categories included in a particular sample.

The information in INSHHANYOTH 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.

Comparability

Apart from universe differences and the contextual meaning of "other," INSHHANYOTH is comparable across samples.

Comparability - Standard DHS

INSHHANYOTH is a country-specific variable, and it is not included in any phase of the standard DHS household questionnaire.
