Description

Dear Support team,
I am interested to examine the relationship between family structures and a range of youth outcomes. I am aware that there ia a variable for household type (hhtype_dv),however,
what I am interested is the identity/relationships of the people living within a given household.

Firstly, I would like to have a variable which is coded something like (1) never married parent(s) and divorced single parent households (2)cohabiting households (3)remarried households (4) traditional two parent biological households. In the cohabiting households it would also be good if I was able to identify if one parent and which parent is the step parent.

In addition, I would like to know if a young person does not reside in a traditional household with mother and father, is it possible to identify the relationship between them and the other members of the household.For example, if they resided with their mother and an aunt or cousins etc.

And finaly, would it be possible to identify grandparents?

Thank you for your time.
