I am using the 2014 KDHS for my dissertation. I am interested in the variable hv206 which shows access to electricity.

However, no information has been provided from the recode on whether hv206 refers to electricity from a generator or mains access or other source.

I would kindly like to know whether access to electricity in the KDHS refers to access to the mains or it is a generalization of all possible sources of electricity.

Thank you.

The electricity question in the 2015 KDHS is simply "Does your household have electricity?" No information is collected about the source.
