WLS Codebooks and Flowcharts

Note: Codebooks contain frequency data from the private data release. For some variables, these differ from the frequencies in the public release. Variables that differ between the public and private versions include "(not available on public release)" as part of the variable description, or a note indicating the difference between the public and private versions.

Phone: Marriage

rc001re-rc004re   All 1993 respondents (N=8493)

rc005re-rc040re   All respondents currently married in 1993. (N=6980)

rc041re-rc076re   Complete marital history through the 1993 follow-up survey
                  using data from 1975 and 1993 sources.

      The variables for complete marital histories are primarily constructed
      using variables from both 1975 and 1993 data.  Please read the sources of
      variables carefully!

      If you want to use variables for number of children from current (1993)
      marriage, these variables were created in one of two ways.

            If the respondents remained in their 1975 marriage and they were
            1975 respondents, we used the new information obtained in 1993 to
            update the previous children's roster obtained in the 1975 survey.
      
            For all other 1993 respondents (i.e., 1975 non-respondents and 
            those not currently in the same marriage at that reported in 1975),
            the data on number of children was obtained solely in the 1993 
            survey.

      Please read related appendices.

Note: RC041RE - RC076RE provide a complete marital history through the
1992 follow-up survey using data from 1975 and 1992 sources.

(1) The following variables for complete marital histories are
primarily constructed using variables from both 1975 and 1992 data.
Please read the sources of variables carefully!

(2) If you want to use variables for number of children from
current (1992) marriage, these variables were created in one of two
ways.

If the respondents remained in their 1975 marriage and
they were 1975 respondents, we used the new information
obtained in 1992 to update the previous children's
roster obtained in the 1975 survey.

For all other 1992 respondents (i.e., 1975 non-
respondents and those not currently in the same marriage
at that reported in 1975), the data on number of
children was obtained solely in the 1992 survey.

and COR514 - Marriage.
