TOILETTYPE reports the main toilet facility used by members of the household.

The respondent to the household questionnaire reports all of the toilet facilities the members of their household use. If more than one facility was reported, the respondent was then asked which toilet facility is the main facility that members of the household use. If the person previously reported that members of the household use only one type of toilet facility, the only type of toilet facility selected is considered the main toilet facility for the household.

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


The range of available response options to the question associated with this variable change across samples and time. For example, the response options "Bush (body of water)" and "Flush or pour flush toilet to pit latrine" are not available universally across samples.
