PIGIMPYN indicates whether the household owned any improved (or non-indigenous) pigs. The complementary variable PIGIMPNUM reports how many improved pigs the household owned.

The related variables PIGYN and PIGNUM indicate whether the household owned pigs (without the "improved" qualifier) and, if yes, how many.

The information in PIGIMPYN 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 when women, children, or births are the unit of analysis, and using the HHRESIDENT variable when household members are the unit of analysis.


PIGIMPYN has no comparability problems.
