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.
HWHENOTHER indicates whether, in response to an open-ended question, the household respondent reported that household members wash their hands (with soap) at some other time. The meaning of other depends on the specific occasions for handwashing mentioned in a particular survey.
The information in HWHENOTHER 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.
