GOATSHEEPNUM
Total number of goats or sheeps owned

This is a 2-digit variable that represents the number of goats or sheep owned by the household, except for the following codes:

90 = Logical edit - missing
96 = Not interviewed (household questionnaire)
97 = Don't know
98 = No response
99 = NIU (not in universe)

Description

GOATSHEEPNUM reports the number of goats or sheep owned by the household.

Users should be careful to distinguish this variable from GOATSHEEPHOME (the number of goats or sheep on the homestead, which may or may not be owned by the household). Users may also be interested in GOATNUM (the number of goats owned by the household) and SHEEPNUM (the number of sheep owned by the household).

Respondents were asked to report what assets the household owned in order to calculate a wealth index based on assets. This information can be found in the variables SCORE, WEALTHQ, and WEALTHT.

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.
