LIVEBYSTEEPHILL indicates whether the household's dwelling is located in or near a steep hill.

The information in LIVEBYSTEEPHILL 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, LIVEBYSTEEPHILL is largely comparable across surveys.
