In this 2 pager put out by the census:
they say “The CPS-ASEC asks all persons 15 years and older whether they have any children living elsewhere with their other parent or guardian at anytime during the previous year. Each individual who satisfies this requirement is then asked whether or not they were required to pay child support and how much was paid in totality during the previous calendar year”
Perhaps I am missing something but I do not see this variable in the CPS IPUMS. Do you know if it is a variable that is accessible to the public? I am trying to capture non-custodial fathers and this variable would be very useful for that purpose.
