Codes and Frequencies

WINSCREENYN indicates whether the dwelling in which the household lives has window(s) with screens, based on the interviewer's observation. Note that a response of "no" may mean a) there are no windows at all or b) windows are present, but none have screens. See WINDOWYN for information about whether the dwelling has any windows.

The information in WINSCREENYN 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").
