Author(s): Rose Kreider and Benjamin Gurrentz*
Companies: U.S. Census Bureau and U.S. Census Bureau
Keywords: Current Population Survey; household relationships; imputation

This presentation will describe upcoming changes to the household relationship data in the CPS. Since 2007, we have added a direct cohabitation question, changed the way we ask respondents to identify parents in the household, changed how we edit same-sex couples, and revised the answer categories on the relationship to householder question. The presentation will describe the changes, explain their benefits, and provide some comparisons to illustrate the changes.

Authors who are presenting talks have a * after their name.
