Description

IRONNUM reports the number of irons owned by the household.

The complementary variable IRONYN indicates whether the household has an iron.

Comparability

IRONNUM has no comparability problems.

The information in IRONNUM 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").

Comparability - Standard DHS

IRONNUM is a country-specific household variable not included in the standard DHS questionnaire.
