Hi,

In Dominican Republic data set 2013, there is a question about "Last 12 months received information about: safe handling of drinking water" (column SH65B). I checked several countries and they do not have this information. Could you inform me which countries have this question besides Dominican Republic? Thank you.

Best,
Daniel

Dear User,
You may want to try the link for IPUMS https://blog.dhsprogram.com/idhs-mpc/
Since these are country specific variables, without this tool you would need to go through each household questionnaire to find this or a similar variable.

The standard model household questionnaire for DHS7 has the question:
AH108 (Recode variable HV225. This variable should be available in most datasets) What do you usually do to make the water safer to drink? Anything else?
A. BOIL
B. ADD BLEACH/CHLORINE
C. STRAIN THROUGH A CLOTH
D. USE WATER FILTER (CERAMIC/SAND/COMPOSITE/TEC)
E. SOLAR DISINFECTION
F. LET IT STAND AND SETTLE
X. OTHER __________
Z. DON'T KNOW
