PTRCLOTH indicates whether the respondent said, in response to an open-ended question, that straining water through a cloth is something that can be done to make the water safe to drink.
The information in PTRCLOTH is taken from the household record, linked to the record of the woman respondent. This information applies to household residents, not temporary visitors, so researchers may wish to exclude visitors using the RESIDENT variable (with visitors coded "2").
