Codes and Frequencies
WASHERNUM reports the number of washing machines owned by the household. The related variable WASHERYN indicates whether the household had any washing machine.
The information in WASHERNUM 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").
