How HH avoids malaria: Has house sprayed

Codes and Frequencies

MLPREHSPRAY indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, the household respondent reported having the house sprayed as a way the household is avoiding malaria.

Because the information in MLPREHSPRAY 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.


MLPREHSPRAY has no comparability problems.

Comparability - Standard DHS

MLPREHSPRAY is a country-specific variable, and it is not included in any phase of the standard DHS questionnaire.
