SLEEPSPACES reports the number of "sleeping spaces" in the household. What constitutes a sleeping space may include, but is not limited to, mats, rugs, mattresses, and beds.

The information in SLEEPSPACES 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").
