The previous chapters presented and discussed the results of the author’s research, using unit record data from secondary sources, to quantify various aspects of health outcomes in India. Chapter 2 examined both toilet possession and personal hygiene in India. It showed that the strongest influences on households in India having a toilet were their standard of living, the highest educational level of adults in the households, and whether or not they possessed ancillary amenities like a separate kitchen for cooking, a pucca roof and floor, and water supply within the dwelling or its compound. However, in so doing, it also showed that whether households had toilets depended not just on household-specific factors but also on the social environment within which the households were located. More specifically, ceteris paribus households in more developed villages would be more likely to have a toilet than those in less developed villages.
