What does “Type” mean in the data?

The “Type” column on the variables selection pages and in your data cart indicates the record type of the variable. The variables with a “P” are from the person record, and the variables with an “H” are from the household record. Data at the household level pertain to each person in the household, and are identical on each person record within a household in the rectangular data file.
