CABINET indicates whether the household has a cabinet or cupboard.

Respondents were asked to report what assets the household owned in order to calculate a wealth index based on assets. This information can be found in the variables SCORE, WEALTHQ, and WEALTHT.

The question associated with this variable was included in the household questionnaire.


Apart from slight variation in question wording, CABINET has no comparability problems. Most commonly, the survey asked "Does your household have a cabinet?" or "Does your household have a cabinet/cupboard?"

Comparability with IPUMS-DHS

CABINET in IPUMS-PMA is similar to the variable CUPBOARDYN, which indicates whether the household has a cupboard or in some cases a cupboard or cabinet, in IPUMS-DHS. Slight variation in question wording and universes between the two variables may affect comparability; please see the Survey Text and Universe Tab of the IPUMS-DHS variable for more information.
