LAPTOP indicates whether the household has a laptop computer. Researchers may wish to combine responses to this variable with responses to the related variable PC, which refers to household ownership of any kind of personal computer.

The information in LAPTOP 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.


LAPTOP has no comparability problems.
