Check chapter 1 and Appendix A of the various survey reports for information on the sample design. In many surveys there is a subsample used for the men's survey and the HIV testing, where:
a) All eligible women in all selected households are interviewed
b) All eligible men in a subsample of 1/2 (or sometimes 1/3) of selected households are interviewed
c) HIV testing is typically carried out for women and men in the same subsample of households selected for the men's interview

Variable hv103 from the PR dataset provides information on whether the person stayed in the household the previous night.
