You answered a question of mine (almost two years ago) related to households with unmarried partners.
In that exchange, I asked how to link children to unmarried partners when they were “delinked” when using the momloc/poploc variables. I know you guys have worked to update the family relationship variables, so I’m taking a second look now that I’m updating the analysis mentioned in this prior question.
Now, I’m wondering what’s the best method or what are the best variables to identify the relationship between a child and the unmarried partner. Ideally, I would be able to identify children that are biological kids of the unmarried partners, children that are the biological children of just the household head, and children that are the biological children of just the unmarried partner. I assume thet using the related variable is the best method for determining the relationship with the household head, but do you have suggestions for accurately pinpointing the nature of the children’s relationship with the unmarried partner? Momloc and poploc are just too generious, so to speak.
Thanks in advance for your time and assistance.
