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.
HANDWASHPLOBS (HV230A) indicates whether the interviewer observed a place that the household uses for handwashing. The related variable HANDWASHPL indicates whether the respondent reported, in response to a direct question, that the household has a place for handwashing.
The information in HANDWASHPLOBS 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.
