OWNOTHERRES indicates whether any member of the household owns a residential building other than the dwelling in which the household lives.

The information in OWNOTHERRES 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").


Apart from universe differences and slight differences in question wording, OWNOTHERRES is comparable across samples.
