GOATNUM reports the number of goats owned by the household. The complementary variable GOATYN indicates whether household owned any goats.
The information in GOATNUM is taken from the household record and applies to regular household residents, not temporary visitors. Researchers may wish to exclude visitors using the RESIDENT variable when women, children, or births are the unit of analysis, and using the HHRESIDENT variable when household members are the unit of analysis.
