Comparability — General

The variable is generally comparable across samples, apart from differences in the age universe. Where samples indicate degrees of difficulty, "severe/significant" or "total" are coded to "yes".

Comparability — Colombia [top]

The question asked about a permanent limitation to bathe, dress or feed oneself.

Comparability — Indonesia [top]

The universe changes significantly with respect to age; the question is asked only of persons age 60 or older in the 2005 sample.

The 2005 sample identifies persons who need other persons' help for dressing, defecating/urinating, bathing, eating/drinking, or preparing food. This question refers to conditions that began in recent time or in the past, but it does not clarify if it only includes permanent disabilities. The 2010 sample identifies persons who have difficulties taking care of themselves.

Comparability — Ireland [top]

The variable indicates whether a person has any difficulty dressing, bathing or getting around inside the home due to a long-lasting condition or difficulty.

Comparability — Israel [top]

In 2008, the census question asks for functional difficulty in self-care (bathing or dressing); the response "does not have difficulty or has a mild difficulty" is coded as "no" in DISCARE.
