Description

CATTLENUM reports the number of cattle owned by the household. In some cases, the question referred specifically to local or indigenous cattle; see Comparability. The complementary variable CATTLEYN indicates whether household owned any cattle.

The information in CATTLENUM 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.

Comparability

Along with universe differences, CATTLENUM varies across samples in question wording. Some surveys asked about local or traditional cattle. Some mentioned examples of non-bovine animals (such as buffalo) for this variable. Most, but not all, samples top-coded the responses at 95 or 97. Specific variations that may affect comparability are discussed below.
