PRESCOOKERYN indicates whether the household has a pressure cooker.

The information in PRESCOOKERYN 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").

In addition to universe differences, PRESCOOKERYN also differs slightly in question wording, as noted below. Some surveys asked whether the household "had" this appliance (which might include access through rental or borrowing), while other surveys asked about ownership of the appliance.
