Description

WHOFETCHAGE (HV236) reports, in broad age and sex categories, the person who usually fetched water for households that used a water source not accessible in their own dwelling or yard. Responses vary across samples; see Comparability.

The information in WHOFETCHAGE 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 when women, children, or births are the unit of analysis, and using the HHRESIDENT variable when household members are the unit of analysis.

Comparability

Along with universe differences and slight differences in question wording, the degree of detail in responses to WHOFETCHAGE (HV236) varies across samples.

To maximize comparability, IPUMS-DHS uses composite coding for this variable. The first digit identifies broad age categories, while the second and third digits supply additional detail present for only some samples. For example, persons over 18 are coded with a first digit of "1"; adult women are identified with the first two digits of "11"; and adult women plus children are coded "111."

Comparability - Standard DHS

WHOFETCHAGE (HV236) is based on a standard recode variable, "person fetching water" (HV236), included in DHS data for Phase 5 forward.

Comparability — Yemen [top]

The 1991 Yemen survey distinguishes between "adult men," "adult women," and "children," without specifying the age cut-off for "children" in this context.
