NATCATFLOOD indicates whether the household was affected by flooding as a natural disaster in the past year.

The information in NATCATFLOOD 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.


NATCATFLOOD has no comparability problems.
