MARKETKM reports the distance from the household to the nearest market place in kilometers (top-coded at 95 kilometers).

The information in MARKETKM is taken from the household record, linked to the record of the woman respondent. This information applies to household residents, not temporary visitors, so researchers may wish to exclude visitors using the RESIDENT variable (with visitors coded "2").


MARKETKM has no comparability problems.
