Where can I find these variables in the IPUMS CPS?



The IPUMS CPS variable HHINTYPE indicates whether members of the household were interviewed and, if not, why no interview took place. Note that when using a rectangular data extract (e.g. with each observation being a person) non-interviewed households will not be included in the extract. Said differently, when using the (default) rectangular extract format, only individuals from households that responded to interviews will show up.
