WATERHEATER indicates whether the household had a water heater.

Comparability — Index



Apart from universe differences and slight differences in question wording, WATERHEATER is comparable across samples.

The information in WATERHEATER 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

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

Comparability — Zambia [top]
