HANDWASHSAND (HV232B) indicates whether the household's handwashing place has ash, mud, or sand present, as a locally available cleansing agent other than soap.
The information in HANDWASHSAND 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.
