Identifying Household Roles
I am working with the first 5 waves of the UsoC.
I am currently trying to undertake a within household analysis for siblings.
I am struggling to find a variable that allows me to identify the person roles within the household, that is who is a father, mother, sibling?, etc.
Is there any variable in the first 5 waves that does this?
That is, ideally, there would be a variable that does the following:
If respondent is father = 1
is mother = 2
is son = 3
Hope that makes sense

No there is no such variable. But there is a file EGOALT which shows the relationship between any two individiuals in the household. The variable is W_RELATIONSHIP_DV. You can use this to construct the hh roles variable.
