MLMQSPRAYHH indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, the household survey respondent reported spraying insecticides as a way to protect against mosquitoes.

Because the information in MLMQSPRAYHH is taken from the household record, it 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.


MLMQSPRAYHH has no comparability problems.
