Comparability

In most samples after 2014, the household questionnaire asks whether the respondent's household has a place to wash hands or a movable container that is not kept in a fixed location (e.g., a bowl or kettle) that is commonly used for hand washing.

However, in other samples, the household questionnaire only asks about whether the respondent's household has a place to wash hands, not distinguishing between fixed places and movable containers. See questionnaire text for more details.
