PLOTSOWNO reports the number of plots of land ("terrains") owned by the household.

The information in PLOTSOWNO 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.


PLOTSOWNO has no comparability problems.
