Hi IPUMS staff,
I’m looking at the varialbe “ownershp”, where there are three answers: N/A, owned or being bought, rent. I have a few questions:
The ownership does not nessary mean that the person live in the house own the house, is that correct? For example, an adult child live with his parents, and I can’t distinguish who actually own the house? I also find some cases where a vistor or partner or roommate report they own the house. So I’m wondering what is the real meaning of “ownershp”.
I tabulate ownershp and famsize. I find all N/A comes from individuals live alone. It looks wired to me why all these individuals report N/A. Do you have any idea?
