LIVENVCABLES indicates whether the household's dwelling is near high or medium tension cables, based on the interviewer's observation.

The information in LIVENVCABLES 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.


LIVENVCABLES has no comparability problems.
