Working Paper Number SEHSD-WP2019-30
Rose Kreider and Benjamin Gurrentz
Component ID: #ti1617044486

Introduction

This paper describes the recent changes made to data collection and processing of household relationship data in the Current Population Survey (CPS). Beginning in May of 2015, a revised relationship to householder question, along with gender neutral parent identification questions were phased in, so that all cases had received them for the 2017 Annual Social and Economic Supplement (ASEC). These data collection changes necessitated adjustments to the demographic editing process, which are also described.
