STRUCTURNO is the number assigned by PMA2020 to the physical structure in which the household lives. The variable HHNUM reports the number of the dwelling within the structure in which the interviewed household lives.

This variable may include non-integer values in select samples. These values were not edited by IPUMS and are from the original data.


There are no comparability issues.

Comparability with IPUMS-DHS

In IPUMS-PMA, STRUCTURNO may refer to a larger physical unit (such as an apartment building) within which a dwelling may be embedded. By contrast, the IPUMS-DHS variable STRUCTURNO refers to a dwelling unit number within a household. For example, the male head and multiple wives and their children may form a single household for a polygamous family, but one wife and her children may occupy a small dwelling within a larger compound (denoted by STRUCTURNO) in IPUMS-DHS.
