Codes and Frequencies
NATCATLOCUST indicates whether the household was affected by swarming grasshoppers or locusts as a natural disaster in the past year. Swarming grasshoppers may completely wipe out crops in an area.
The information in NATCATLOCUST 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.
