LIVENVMANYELEC indicates whether the environment of the household's dwelling was characterized by too many electrical cables connecting the neighborhood to power sources, based on the interviewer's observation.

The information in LIVENVMANYELEC 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.


LIVENVMANYELEC has no comparability problems.
