NATCAT3Y indicates whether the household was affected by an event that (negatively) affected life for the family, in the past 3 years.

The information in NATCAT3Y 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.


NATCAT3Y has no comparability problems.
