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

The variables for complete marital histories are primarily constructed
using variables from both 1977 and 1994 data.  Please read the sources of
variables carefully!

If you want to use variables for number of children from current (1994)
marriage, these variables were created in one of two ways.

     If the respondents remained in their 1977 marriage and they were
     1977 respondents, we used the new information obtained in 1994 to
     update the previous children's roster obtained in the 1977 survey,
     by adding the number of biological and adopted children who were 
     born between the marriage start and end dates.
     
     For all other 1994 respondents who answered the phone interview 
     (i.e., 1977 non-respondents and those not currently in the same 
     marriage at that reported in 1977), the data on number of children
     was obtained solely in the 1994 survey.  PLEASE NOTE that often 
     the answer to the question "How many biological or adopted children
     did you have in this marriage?" does NOT match the numbers and 
     birthdays of children collected in the child roster.

     For 1977 non-respondents who answered the MAIL SURVEY only,
     the number of children could only be ascertained for the 
     current/last marriage.  This was done by selecting the biological 
     and adopted children who were born between the marriage start and 
     end dates.

Please read related appendices.

NOTE:   This module includes the 661 siblings who responded to the mail only 
        questionnaire; in addition to the respondents of the 1993-94 sibling 
        phone survey.  Variable names from the mail only survey are
        proceeded by an "&" in the parenthesized list of variable
        names included with the variable description.

Note: A 1977 sibling respondent who was never married at the time of the
1977 interview, but then married for the first time after 1977 and
before the 1993/94 interview, was not asked about characteristics of
the first spouse, unless the sibling respondent was married only once
since 1977 and was still in that marriage at the time of the 1993/94
interview.

Sibling respondents who answered only the mail questionnaire were
not asked for the birthdate of any spouses; thus, the age of the first
spouse is coded as Not Ascertained.

Wherever possible, information from the 1993/94 survey was used to
calculate the age of the sibling respondent's spouse before marriage
(that is, if there is a discrepency between the birthdate of the first
spouse, and XAGEFSP, then the birthdate was used to calculate
this value.) Conversely, if there was nonresponse on the birthdate
question, then XAGEFSP was used to calculate the birthdate, if
possible.

Note: For 1977 respondents who married for the first time before 1977,
this variable refers to the education of the spouse at the time the
spouse married the sibling respondent, unless the sibling respondent
was married only once and was currently married at the time of the
1977 interview. In this case, this variable reflects the educational
attainment of the spouse in 1977. For 1977 non-respondents, this
variable refers to the first spouse's educational attainment at the
time of marriage.

Sibling respondents who answered only the mail questionnaire
provided the educational attainment of their first spouse at the
time of marriage only if the sibling respondent had been married
only one time.

Note: In cases where the respondent indicated a current marital status of
divorced, but the last marriage ending in separation, we assume that
the marriage ended in divorce.

In cases where the respondent was never married in 1977 and
indicated that s/he was currently married, but did not get married
after 1977, we assumed one marriage occured (with begin date of
marriage unknown).

There is 1 case where the status is separation but the
respondent has since married. Since we do not know how the
marriage ultimately ended we keep the separation data, as the
respondent was separated in 1977.

Note: Male sibling respondents were not asked about the number of
children from the first marriage in 1977. If these respondents were
married more than once before their 1977 interview, we calculated
the number of children in their first marriage either by: (1) sub-
tracting the numbers of children from later marriages from the total
number or children, or (2)using information about the birthdates of
children obtained in 1993/94 to obtain the number of children born
during the first marriage.

The number of adopted children was not ascertained for men in the
1977 interview, while it was ascertained in the 1993 interview. This
variable includes BOTH biological and adopted children, while the
1977 variable (XFMNOCH) does not include adopted children. Thus,
SC048REE is often greater than XFMNOCH, even when the respondent
had no more children after 1977.
