Disposal of children's waste: other

KIDFECDISPOTHER is a 44-character string variable.


KIDFECDISPOTHER reports the household's "other" method for disposing of young children's fecal waste. Respondents are asked an open-ended question about how children's fecal waste is disposed of in the household, and interviewers record the response using a predetermined list of methods. In some cases, the reported method does not fall into one of these categories and is classified as "other." This variable reports the exact string that was entered by the interviewer to describe these "other" methods of disposing of fecal waste. The main survey for the Democratic Republic of the Congo 2013 Round 1 sample was fielded in French, and the descriptions of the method in KIDFECDISPOTHER are also in French.

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


There are no comparability issues.
