Description

This variable indicates whether the land on which the dwelling was located was owned, either in full or in part, by one of the dwelling's residents.

Conceivably, a resident might own land but not the dwelling on which it resides. Such a case would be classified as NIU (not in universe): only dwellings indicating that a resident owned the dwelling were asked about land ownership.

Comparability — General

The major categories are generally comparable across samples, but differing levels of detail are available.

Comparability — Brazil [top]

In the 2000 sample, the land where the dwelling is located is ceded when it is not owned by any of the household members, but is occupied by them free of charge or in exchange for an occupation or maintenance fee (condo expenses, gas, power, etc.). It includes the case where the rent is paid directly or indirectly by a person who is not a resident, such as the employer of any of the household members or any other institution.

The 1991 sample simply specifies whether the household owned the dwelling and land, just the dwelling, or neither.

Comparability — Cameroon [top]

The 1987 census asked whether the dwelling was owned with or without a land certificate.

Comparability — Fiji [top]

In the 1996, 2007, and 2014 samples, all households were asked about land ownership regardless of whether they owned the dwelling. In LANDOWN, households who did not own the dwelling were coded as "not in universe" for consistency with other countries and years. The source variables contain more detailed codes for type of land tenure among households who did not own the land.

Comparability — Indonesia [top]

The 1985 and 1995 samples are comparable; these samples specify the unique land tenure arrangements "Right to build" and "Right to use". See the enumeration text for details. The 2010 census question is a simple yes/no question on land ownership. The 1995 and 2010 censuses ask the question of households still paying for dwelling ownership, whereas the 1985 census does not.

Comparability — Jamaica [top]

The data are fully consistent across samples. Leaseholds can be separated from renting using the unharmonized source variables.

Comparability — Puerto Rico [top]

The samples do not distinguish between land held rent-free either with or without consent.

There is no distinction between "Rent-free, occupied with consent" and "Rent-free, occupied without consent" in the unharmonized categories. The original code is "Does not pay rent for use of land", and it is recoded as "Rent-free, occupied with consent".

Comparability — Saint Lucia [top]

Renting and lease holding are combined, but they can be distinguished using the unharmonized source variable.

Comparability — Tanzania [top]

The 2012 census asked of the legal right the household has over the ownership of the land where the house was built. In this sample, all the possible responses regarding having a legal right, except for an "offer," were considered as the land being owned by a resident.

Comparability — Thailand [top]

The data is fully consistent across samples.

Comparability — Trinidad and Tobago [top]

The data is fully consistent across samples apart from minor universe changes.

In 1990, all households were asked about land ownership regardless of whether they owned the dwelling. For the integrated variable, households who did not own the dwelling were coded as "Not in universe" for consistency with other countries and years.

Comparability — Uganda [top]

See the enumeration text for definitions -- Uganda has unique land tenure arrangements.

Comparability — Uruguay [top]

The 2006 and 2011 samples distinguish households that are paying for land and dwelling from those that have fully paid.
