Child-parent pairs in IHIS

Hi, I am wondering is it possible to identify child-parent pair in IHIS? Or, only IPUMS-USA allow this identification?


Thanks,

CW

Staff Answer

In the most recent samples available through IHIS the person numbers of mothers and fathers are available for children: https://www.ihis.us/ihis-action/variables/group/demographic_family. These variables can be used to identify child-parent pairs.

The IHIS project plans to create variables like for the samples prior to 1997 and make them available within the year.

I hope this helps.
