Description

Hello,

I cannot seem to find a variable that simply states if the respondent has children (=is a parent) or not. I am confident that there is one, but I did not succeed finding one in the variable search, so I would be very grateful for help.

Best regards
Leo

Hello Leo,
Consider exploring the variable "nchild_dv," which indicates the number of own children in the household, including natural children, adopted children, and stepchildren under the age of 16. If you need to identify any children based on their age, you can refer to the datafile "xhhrel," which provides information on all family relationships throughout the study.

I hope this information is helpful.

Best wishes,
Roberto Cavazos
