SUGARTYPE reports the type of sugar (based on packaging) observed in the household.
Some types of sugar in Zambia were fortified with Vitamin A.

The information in SUGARTYPE 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.


SUGARTYPE has no comparability problems.
