STOTHGOVAGO reports how many months or years have passed since the household, or any member of the household, received support from some other government transfer or grant. The meaning of "other" must be interpreted relative to the specific categories included in a particular sample.

The information in STOTHGOVAGO 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.


STOTHGOVAGO has no comparability problems.
