Full count availability of MARRINYR


#1

I see that MARRINYR is available for all samples 1850–1880, but not for full count data. I wonder if the variable will become available for full count data in 1850/1880 in the future, or for 1860/1870 when those full count data are made available.


#2

The goal is to have the complete set of variables available for full count files by 2020. However, I don’t see an explicit note about the forthcoming availability of MARRINYR on the full count notes page. This might have something to do with the perceived under-reporting of recent marriages between 1850 and 1880. Therefore, unfortunately, I don’t expect this variable to become available for the full count files.
