When i crosstab FERTYR*YNGCH for women ages 15-50, I find about 1900 cases in the 2015 ACS where a woman reports a yngch>1 in the home, but FERTYR NE 2.
I know some small share of these might be cases where the infant is adopted so the coding is OK, but looking through the HH records, that doesn’t seem to be that common.
Can you give me any advice about how I can get this coding to match up appropriately? There are many cases where it seems pretty clear that FERTYR should probably=2, but some cases are less obvious, so I hesitate to implement a global edit.
Thanks for any help,
