Comparability

Along with universe differences, DVDVCD differs across samples in the specific entertainment media referred to. Most commonly, surveys asked whether the household had a CD and DVD player. Samples with alternative wording are discussed below.

The information in DVDVCD is taken from the household record, linked to the record of the woman respondent. This information applies to household residents, not temporary visitors, so researchers may wish to exclude visitors using the RESIDENT variable (with visitors coded "2").
