This presentation covers four changes we’ve made to the household relationship data in the CPS over the last decade, including the introduction of a direct cohabitation question, changes to the parent identification questions, changes in our edit procedures for same-sex couples, and the expansion of the “husband or wife” and “unmarried partner” categories.
