VENTQUALITY reports the quality of ventilation inside the dwelling, as good, moderate, or bad, based on the observation and judgment of the interviewer.

The information in VENTQUALITY 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.


VENTQUALITY has no comparability problems.
