Item non-response occurs in two situations:
Item non-response is calculated by dividing the number of households or persons who provided a response to a particular question (item) by the number of persons for whom the question (item) would have been applicable, and is expressed as a percentage.
Item non-response rates include households and persons who did not answer a question (item) as well as imputed (non-responding) households and persons.
