Literal question
How long does it take to go there, get water, and come back?
Interviewer instructions
This question is used to find out how convenient the source of water is to the dwelling. Note that the question is asked for water sources coded as '13-81' and '96' in WS1, or water sources coded as '13-96' in WS2.

Fill in the estimated time (in minutes, converting from hours, if necessary) it takes by the usual mode of transport to get to the water source, wait to get water, and get back to the dwelling. Use zero(s) preceding the number if less than 100 minutes (for example, '060' or '005'). Then continue to the next question.

If the water source is on the dwelling premises or if water is delivered to the dwelling by a vendor, circle '995' for 'Water on premises' and skip to WS5. If the respondent does not know how long it takes, circle '998' and continue on to the next question.
