Dear IPUMS staff,
I’m using CPS ASEC and I’m looking for a variable that indicates whether the respondent was attending school in that survey year. I found [SCHLCOLL]. However, from 1986-2012, only respondents aged between 16 and 24 were being asked. From 2013-2018, respondents aged between 16-54 were being asked. I’m wondering if there is any way that I can know a respondent older than 24 from 1986-2012 surveys were attending school?
In addition, is it true that the [OCCI1950] variable, which shows the occupation, will not be available for those who said they are attending either full time or part time school?
