Comparability

Apart from universe differences and slight differences in question wording, SOFA is largely comparable across most samples. Most surveys asked either "Does your household have a sofa?" or "Does your household have a sofa set?" Surveys with substantially different question wording are discussed below.

The information in SOFA is taken from the household record, linked to the record of the woman respondent. This information applies to household residents, not temporary visitors, so researchers may wish to exclude visitors using the RESIDENT variable (with visitors coded "2").

Comparability - Standard DHS

SOFA is a country-specific variable not included in the standard DHS questionnaire.
