HOMEOWNDOC indicates whether the household has a property title or similar document establishing their ownership of their dwelling.

The information in HOMEOWNDOC 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 (with visitors coded "2") 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 and slight differences in question wording, HOMEOWNDOC is largely comparable across samples.
