OWNHOUSE indicates whether the household owns the dwelling in which they live or any other house.

The information in OWNHOUSE 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 (V135) variable (with visitors coded "2").


Aside from universe differences, OWNHOUSE is comparable across samples.
