Description

RELIGION reports the religion of the household head, as reported by the respondent of the household questionnaire. Users should note that the respondent for the household questionnaire was not necessarily the household head.

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

Comparability

In most samples, the household respondent reports the religion of the household head, but the records of all members of the household are assigned the religion of the household head.

In the India 2016 Round 1 and Ghana 2016 Round 5 samples, only the record of the household head contains information about the household head's religion. All other household members are not in universe for this variable.

Comparability with IPUMS-DHS

The IPUMS-PMA variable RELIGION is somewhat similar to the RELIGION variable in IPUMS-DHS. However, the RELIGION variable in IPUMS-DHS has many more categories and different codes, and this information was usually collected for additional household members (e.g., women of childbearing age), not just for the household head.
