Dear User,
V505 Whether the respondent is in a polygynous union and the number of other wives the
respondent's partner currently has.
BASE: Currently married or in union women (V502 = 1).

This information came out of The Standard Recode Manual http:// dhsprogram.com/publications/publication-DHSG4-DHS-Questionna ires-and-Manuals.cfm
Thank you for your post.
