This is a 2-digit variable that represents a number of dogs or cats owned by the household. Unlike DOGCATHOME, NIU (not in universe cases) were coded to zero in the original data.
DOGCATNUM reports the total number of dogs or cats owned by the household.
Users should be careful to distinguish this variable from DOGCATHOME (the number of dogs or cats on the homestead, which may or may not be owned by the household).
The question associated with this variable was included in the household questionnaire.
