Description

For women who gave birth in the 3 to 5 years before the survey and have prepared ORS, ORSPREPWAT (V423) reports the quantity of water, measured in milliliters, used in the preparation of the oral rehydration solution.

Most samples include fixed categories such as 1/2 liter, 1 liter, and 1-1/2 liters, which are then recoded as 500, 1000, and 1500 milliliters. Some responses are also recorded as bottle sizes, such as beer bottle or coke bottle; these are also recoded in ORSPREPWAT into their respective sizes (333 and 250 milliliters, respectively). If the size of a particular container (e.g., a glass) was not known, this response is recorded as "Unknown quantity" (code "9995").
