Status:Closed    Asked:Nov 11, 2015 - 10:02 PM

What Relevant Data does SSMC=1 refer to in ACS 2013?

SSMC=1 shows 'Same-sex married-couple household where not all relevant data shown as reported'

and

SSMC=2 shows 'All other same-sex married-couple households


But the description and code windows both do not explain what relevant data is not shown as reported. And I have no idea where to find what they mean... So any clarification is much appreciated.


Thanks in advance!

Respondents with an SSMC value of 1 were logically allocated as a same-sex married-couple, even though they were missing valid responses for SEX or RELATE. More information about the introduction of SSMC in the 2013 ACS can be found here.


I hope this helps!
