Variables Created

  • CV_YTH_REL_HH_AGE_2
  • CV_YTH_REL_HH_AGE_6
  • CV_YTH_REL_HH_AGE_12

This program creates variables indicating the relationship of the youth to the primary adults in the household when the youth was age 2, 6, and 12. Note that this program uses data from the Round 1 Parent Questionnaire, so it is only available for respondents who have a completed parent interview.

Mother's Age at First Birth/Respondent's Birth

These variables were only created in Round 1.

Variables Created

  • CV_BIO_MOM_AGE_CHILD1 
  • CV_BIO_MOM_AGE_YOUTH

This program creates two variables which identify the age of the youth's biological mother when she gave birth to her first child and when the youth was born. Note that this program uses data from the Round 1 Parent Questionnaire, so it is only available for respondents who have a completed parent interview.

Current Citizenship Status - Appendix 3

Number of Residences since Age 12 - Appendix 3

Variables Created

Subsequent rounds continue to update the variable with respondent-provided data (but do not use data from the Round 6 Childhood Retrospective).

Training: Receipt of Certificate or Vocational License - Appendix 1

Variables Created

  • CVC_TRN_CERT (TRNCERT)

This program creates a cross-round variable that reports whether the respondent has ever received a certificate or license other than a GED through a training program. If so, a pair of cross-round variables provide the month and year that the most recent certificate or license was obtained. These variables are created for all respondents, not just those interviewed in the most recent round.
