SALTEST2 reports the iodine level in the household's cooking salt, using a second grouping for the values. The levels are grouped based on PPM (parts per million).
The information in SALTEST2 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 when women, children, or births are the unit of analysis, and using the HHRESIDENT variable when household members are the unit of analysis.
The related variables SALTEST1 (HV234) and SALTEST3 (HV234A) also report iodine levels in cooking salt, but with different groupings. For discussion of the rationale for collecting such information, see SALTEST1.
