I’m seeking all workers by industry earning 200% FPL and below, for Georgia in the 2020 ASEC. I presume that I need to identify each household member in each household size scenario in the Census Poverty Threshold, and then join(merge) all of that data together for analysis. In a one or two-member household with no children, I think I can id the householder and spouse/partner. But in larger household sizes with unrelated/related sub-families, identifying the third, fourth, etc. household member doesn’t seem possible by using the PERNUM or NUMPREC variables. (Keep in mind that I have not downloaded my samples and variables and put them into R yet, I’m trying to map out my data gathering methodology first)
To more specifically describe my process, here’s my data gathering method to filter for a 200% FPL, 2-member non-married household, w/ no children, householder below age 65:
For Householder: FTYPE code 2 (non-family householder), AGE < 65, NUMPREC code 2 (household size of 2), NCHILD code 0 (no children), OFFTOTVAL <= 31,288
For Partner: FTYPE code 5 (secondary individual), NUMPREC code 2 (household size of 2), NCHILD code 0 (no children), OFFTOTVAL <= 31,288
But this type of filter won’t seem to id additional sub-family household members. What do I do?
