Hi,

I am currently working with the continuous survey for Senegal from 2017. I had a closer look at the variable HV226 (cooking fuel) and I was quite surprised that according to the data not even a single household uses wood as its primary cooking fuel. However, based on my experice in Senegal most households, especially in rural areas, cook using wood as their primary fuel.
/index.php?t=getfile&id=1122&private=0
My hypothesis when looking at the table is that wood was simply recoded to "coal/lignite", but I would appreciate any clarification on this matter.
Thanks in advance for your help.
Nathanael
