STEREONUM reports the number of stereos owned by the household. The complementary variable STEREOYN indicates whether the household has a stereo.

The information in STEREONUM 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").


STEREONUM has no comparability problems.
