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.
INSHHANYORG indicates whether any member of the household is covered by a community health insurance program. Community health insurance programs, also called "micro" or "local" health insurance, involve prepayment and the pooling of resources to cover the cost of health-related events, generally for low-income populations. The "community" may consist of residents of the same town or district, members of a work group, families living near a health facility, or some other definition.
The information in INSHHANYORG 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.
