BULLNUM reports the number of bulls owned by the household. The complementary variable BULLYN indicates whether the household owned any bulls.

Most surveys instead ask simultaneously about the household's ownership of milk cows or bulls (in COWBULLYN and COWBULLNUM).

The information in BULLNUM 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.


BULLNUM has no comparability problems.
