Codes and Frequencies
MLPREHOTH indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, the household respondent reported the household uses some other method to avoid malaria. The meaning of "other" must be interpreted relative to the specific categories included in a particular sample.
Because the information in MLPREHOTH 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.
