OWNHOUSEWHO reports the gender of the household member who owns this household's dwelling or some other dwelling.
The information in OWNHOUSEWHO 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 (with visitors coded "2") when women, children, or births are the unit of analysis, and using the HHRESIDENT variable when household members are the unit of analysis.
