Codes and Frequencies
INSHHTYPE reports the type of health insurance scheme covering the respondent for the household survey. Categories are broad (e.g., private health insurance, government health coverage), rather than specifying country-specific health insurance programs.
The information in INSHHTYPE 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.
