PIGHOME
Total number of pigs on homestead

This is a 3-digit variable that represents the number of pigs on the homestead, 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

PIGHOME reports the number pigs on the household's homestead, regardless of who owns them.

Users should be careful to distinguish this variable from PIGNUM (the number of pigs 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.
