Warning: these figures indicate the number of cases found in the data file. They cannot be interpreted as summary statistics of the population of interest.
HWNOCLAGENT (HV232Y) indicates whether no cleaning agent (such as soap, ash, sand, or mud) was observed in the handwashing place.
The information in HWNOCLAGENT 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.
