Comparability

Apart from universe differences, SEWMACHINE is comparable across most samples. Most surveys asked "Does your household have a sewing machine?" Samples with different question wording are discussed below.

The information in SEWMACHINE 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").
