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.
For residents of households with shared toilet facilities, TOILSHARNUMT (HV238) reports the number of other households sharing their toilet, topcoded at 9 or more other households. Thus, in IPUMS-DHS, a value of 1 in TOILSHARNUMT means that 1 other household is using the household's toilet, for a total of 2 households using that facility.
The information in TOILSHARNUMT 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.
