CHICKENHOME
Total number of chicken on homestead

This is a 4-digit variable that represents the number of chickens on the homestead, except for the following codes:

9996 = Not interviewed (household questionnaire)
9997 = Don't know
9998 = No response
9999 = NIU (not in universe)

Description

CHICKENHOME reports the total number of chickens on the homestead, regardless of who owns them.

Users should be careful to distinguish this variable from CHICKENNUM (the number of chickens owned by the household).

Enumerators were instructed to code "Don't know" or "No response" cases as -88 and -99, respectively. However, in some samples, a select number of enumerators recorded an unexpectedly high number of 88 and 99 values for livestock variables. We believe the majority of these cases were intended to represent "don't know" and "no responses" instead of indicating a number of livestock. IPUMS has recoded these cases to "Logical edit - missing".

The question associated with this variable was included in the household questionnaire.
