Codes and Frequencies

NONHOMESTEAD indicates whether the household owns any land other than their homestead (i.e., other than the land where the family's house and outbuildings are located). The complementary variable HOMESTEAD indicates whether the household owns its homestead land.

The information in NONHOMESTEAD 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.


NONHOMESTEAD has no comparability problems.
