Description

TOILET indicates the presence of a flush toilet within the structure that was available to the occupants of the housing unit. Portable and outdoor toilets did not count. The variable also indicates whether the flush toilet was shared with occupants of other housing units in the same building. Users may also want to consult two related variables: TOILET2 and PLUMBING. TOILET2 indicates the location and type of toilet facilities available for use by residents of the housing unit and is available for the 1960 U.S. Census, the 1970 U.S. and Puerto Rican Censuses and for the 1980-1990 Puerto Rican Censuses. PLUMBING is a closely related variable that reports access to running water, a flush toilet and a bathtub and/or shower and is available for the 1960 U.S. Census, the 1970 U.S. and Puerto Rican Censuses, the 1980-1990 U.S. Censuses, the 2000 U.S. and Puerto Rican Censuses, the 2000-onward ACS, and the 2005-onward PRCS.

Note: This variable was discontinued in 2016. See the Comparability section for more information.

Comparability

In 2016, this variable was discontinued due to questionnaire changes. The 5-year ACS files retain values for data from years 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015. The Census Bureau suggests that users not create estimates using this variable for the ACS 5-year files beginning with the 2016 5-year ACS file.

Otherwise, this variable is generally comparable across the years and samples for which it is available.
