CAMELNUM reports the number of camels owned by the household. The complementary variable CAMELYN indicates whether household owned any camels.

The information in CAMELNUM 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.


Apart from universe differences, CAMELNUM has no comparability problems. All samples top-coded responses at 95 or 97.
