This is a follow-up to my previous question:
The CPS has information about nonresponses, including whether the reason is refusal or noncontact (e.g. "not at home" or "temporarily absent"), as exemplified by this page: [https://www.census.gov/programs-surve...](https://www.census.gov/programs-surveys/cps/technical-documentation/methodology/non-response-rates.html) Where can I find these variables in the IPUMS CPS?
The answer provided by Jeff Bloem was helpful – it taught me that hhintype is only useful in the hierarchical format. Thanks! However, it didn’t quite answer my question. HHINTYPE (in the hierarchical format) has three values: “Interview”, “Type A non-interview”, and “Type B/C non-interview”. This isn’t enough to tell me who refused and who wasn’t home. According to the CPS documentation, “[Type A households] are not interviewed because the household members refuse, are absent during the interviewing period, or unavailable for other reasons.”
So what I’m looking for would break down Type A households into “refusals” and “not at home”. I know the CPS contains this data based on the link at the top of this question. Maybe it’s just not in the IPUMS version? Any leads are appreciated. Thanks again, Wayne.
