WINDOWTYPE reports whether the household's dwelling has windows and, if so, what fills in the window space (e.g., glass, blinds) to block the entry of dirt, moisture, and insects from the outside.

The information in WINDOWTYPE 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.


WINDOWTYPE has no comparability problems.
