BEEFCTNUM reports the number of beef cattle (i.e., cattle raised for the production of meat) owned by the household.

The information in BEEFCTNUM is taken from the household record and applies to regular household residents, not temporary visitors. Researchers may wish to exclude visitors using the RESIDENT variable when women, children, or births are the unit of analysis, and using the HHRESIDENT variable when household members are the unit of analysis.


BEEFCTNUM has no comparability problems.
