Warning: these figures indicate the number of cases found in the data file. They cannot be interpreted as summary statistics of the population of interest.
LINENOWIFE_ALL (MV034_x) reports the line number of the man's wives/partners. These variables can be used, in conjunction with HHID to match the men - s data with the women - s data, to allow for the analysis of couples. A value of "0" means the wife was not listed as a member of the household.
LINENOWIFE_ALL consists of a set of eight separate variables, covering the man's first wife/partner (LINENOWIFE_01) up to his eighth wife/partner (LINENOWIFE_08). If LINENOWIFE_ALL is included in a data extract, all these separate variables are included in a researcher's data file.
Information for this variable was collected on all of the man's wives/partners, up to a maximum of eight. In many cases, data were hypothetically collected on up to eight wives/partners, but no men in the survey had so many wives/partners (e.g., no man had seven or eight wives/partners). If, for example, no man in a survey had eight wives/partners and only blank values were included in the original DHS file, then LINENOWIFE_08 would not be available for that survey in IPUMS-DHS.
