LIVEBYLANDSLIDE indicates whether the household's dwelling is located in or near a landslide-prone area.

The information in LIVEBYLANDSLIDE 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.


Apart from universe differences and slight differences in question wording, LIVEBYLANDSLIDE is largely comparable across surveys.
