Comparability — General

ELECTRIC is generally comparable across samples. In many samples access to electricity is inferred from a question on source of lighting. ELECTRIC assumes that if a household has access to electricity, it will be used for lighting.

The treatment of power from generators is inconsistent across samples. In cases where a sample identified power from generators separately, the IPUMS codes the household as "Yes," having electricity. See the enumeration text for the source questions.

Comparability — Argentina [top]

The samples both identify households with generators, which are coded as having electricity.

Comparability — Armenia [top]

The census question concerned the main source of lighting in the dwelling. Lighting from other sources is coded as "No".

Comparability — Bangladesh [top]

The census questions ask simply whether the dwelling had an electricity connection. In the 1991 sample, the census question was asked to all households. In subsequent censuses, the question was asked only to permanent households.

Comparability — Benin [top]

The census question asked about the source of lighting of the household. Enumeration instructions indicate to not trust the presence of electric outlets, as these may not receive electricity. Lighting from sources different than electricity is coded as "No".

The 2002 and 2013 samples include electricity of alternative sources (public utility, communal generator, private generator, and solar energy), which are all coded as "Yes".

Comparability — Bolivia [top]

The census questions in 1976 and 1992 asked simply whether the dwelling had electricity, while the 2001 census question concerned the use of electricity for lighting. The 2012 sample provides more detailed categories that record the source of electricity.

Comparability — Botswana [top]

The census question in all samples concerned the main source of lighting. Lighting from solar power is coded as "Yes."

Comparability — Brazil [top]

The electricity question in 1960, 1970, 1980, 1990 and 2000 asked about the presence of electric lighting in the household, whether or not it was connected to a general system. The census question in 2010 asked whether the dwelling had an electricity connection.

Comparability — Burkina Faso [top]

The census question concerned the main source of lighting in the dwelling. Lighting from other sources is coded as "No".

Comparability — Cambodia [top]

For all samples the census question was about the main source of light in the household. "Battery" power is coded "No" for having electricity.

Comparability — Cameroon [top]

The census question concerned the main source of lighting in the dwelling. Lighting from other sources is coded as "No".

Comparability — Chile [top]

1960 is a sample of individuals, not households. Only persons who were heads of households get a response for most household variables.

Comparability — Costa Rica [top]

All samples refer to type of lighting. The 2011 sample distinguishes several categories of public electricity providers. See the unharmonized source variable for more detail.

Comparability — Cuba [top]

In the 2002 and 2012 samples, the census question refers to the use of electricity for lighting. The universe and categories are comparable across samples.

Comparability — Dominican Republic [top]

All samples refer to electricity used for lighting and include all electric sources such as public electricity and generators. Non-electric sources of lighting such as lamps are identified in the unharmonized source variable. The 1981 sample also includes combinations of public systems (CDE), private systems, and private generators as possible sources of electricity.

Comparability — Ecuador [top]

1962 is a sample of individuals, not households. Only persons who were heads of households get a response for most household variables.

Comparability — Egypt [top]

The census question concerned the use of electricity for lighting. All households were asked this question in 1986 and 1996, while only private households in 2006. The 2006 census explicitly refers to electricity from the public network, the "No" category may include private electric generators.

Comparability — El Salvador [top]

In both samples the census question pertained to electricity used for lighting. Private generators were included. In the 2007 sample, "Solar panels" is a listed option and is coded as "Yes".

Comparability — Ethiopia [top]

All samples refer to type of lighting and all explicitly differentiate between private meter and shared meter electricity. See the unharmonized source variables for more detail. The 1984 and 1994 universes are for only urban households.

In the 2007 sample, both "Electricity from generator" and "Solar energy" are coded as "Yes."

Comparability — Fiji [top]

The census questions in 1986 and 1996 asked simply whether the dwelling had electricity. The 2007 and 2014 census identify the electricity suppliers (in the source variable).

Comparability — France [top]

The census question asked whether the household was connected to the electrical distribution network. It is possible that some households coded "No" could generate their own electricity.

In 2006 and 2011 information about electricity was only collected for regular households in overseas departments and is not included in this variable. See the unharmonized source variables.

Comparability — Ghana [top]

The samples refer to type of lighting. In the 2000 sample, lighting from solar energy is coded as "Yes." Lighting from kerosene, butane or any other source is coded as "No." In the 2010 sample, electricity from the mains, private generators, or solar panels are coded as "Yes". Other sources of lighting such as kerosene, firewood, flashlights, etc. are coded as "No".

Comparability — Guatemala [top]

The census question for all samples refers to the type of lighting available for the household. In 1981 and 1994, the questionnaire also asked whether the dwelling is connected to the electrical distribution system. Responses referring both to electricity as the type of lightning or whether the household is connected to the electrical distribution system are coded as "Yes".

Comparability — Guinea [top]

The census questions in both samples refer to type of lighting.

Comparability — Haiti [top]

The census question concerned the main source of lighting in the dwelling. Lighting from other sources is coded as "No." In the 1982 sample, the census question was asked to the occupied households in the communes of Port-au-Prince and Croix des Bouquets. In the 1971 and 2003 censuses, the question was asked to all households.

Comparability — Honduras [top]

The census question refers to type of lighting. Lighting from other sources is coded as "No". The 1988 and 2001 samples consider various types of electricity sources (public system, private system, generator, and solar panels), which are all coded as "Yes".

Comparability — Hungary [top]

The census question concerned the use of electricity for lighting.

Comparability — Indonesia [top]

Comparability — Ireland [top]

These were separate questions on the census form. In the 2009 sample, the sole census question was about the main source of lighting fuel in the household. Lighting not from electricity is coded as "No".

Comparability — Laos [top]

"Car battery" is considered "No" for having electricity.

Comparability — Lesotho [top]

Comparability — Malawi [top]

The variable is available in the 1998 and 2008 samples. In both censuses the question addressed electricity for lighting the household. In the 1998 census, the question was asked of multiple dwellings occupied by the household; only the response for the first dwelling is included in this variable.

Comparability — Mexico [top]

The Mexico 1970-2010 samples refer to electricity used for lighting, regardless of whether the source was public distribution, battery, solar power, etc. If the service was temporarily suspended or unavailable, the household is still classified as having electricity.
