DVDVCDNUM reports the number of DVD/CD players owned by the household. The complementary variable DVDVCD indicates whether the household had any of these machines.

The information in DVDVCDNUM 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").


DVDVCDNUM has no comparability problems.
