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.
CHHEDREADFQ reports how frequently any household member reads to the child selected for the child education module (CHHEDKIDLINENO). Responses range from "not at all" to "a few times a week."
The related variable CHHEDREADREG indicates whether a member of the household regularly read to the child in the past week.
The information in CHHEDREADFQ is taken from the household record and applies to regular household members, 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.
