HOMEOWNDOCOTHER indicates whether the household has some "other" document establishing their ownership of their dwelling. The meaning of "other" depends on the types of documentation of home ownership specified in a survey.

The information in HOMEOWNDOCOTHER 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, HOMEOWNDOCOTHER is largely comparable across samples.
