OTHERLIVESTOCKNUM
Total number of other livestock owned

This is a 3-digit variable that represents the number of "other" livestock owned by the household, except for the following codes:

900 = Logical edit - missing
996 = Not interviewed (household questionnaire)
997 = Don't know
998 = No response
999 = NIU (not in universe)

Description

OTHERLIVESTOCKNUM reports the total number of "other" livestock owned by the household. The meaning of "other" will vary sample to sample, depending on the specific types of livestock asked about in each survey. Users are encouraged to see questionnaire text to better determine what is meant by "other."

Users should also be careful to distinguish this variable from OTHERLIVESTOCKHOME, which reports the total number of "other" livestock on the household's homestead, regardless of who owns them.

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.

Apart from the contextual meaning of "other" livestock, there are no comparability issues.
