I am attempting to utilize some of the same data used in the paper cited below. However, I am having a difficult time finding the data for the gender of a household’s firstborn child even though the referenced paper utilized that exact variable from CPS in 1980. Does this variable exist and, if so, how can I access it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
