Households with Flush Toilets: “"Have toilet, type not specified"

For calculating the population of households with a flush toilet, I noticed that code 20 in TOILET ( "Have toilet, type not specified") could pose a problem for this calculation. Should I include or exclude this code from my calculation?

Do you have the same question? Follow this Question

Staff Answer

Is there a particular country (or countries) that you are interested in? Many of our international samples include the specified type of toilet (flush, non-flush). However, if you are interested specifically in households with only a flush toilet and the sample you are working with does not identify flush toilets, then you will be unable to make this calculation.
