CSAMREC
Amount of child support actually received

Codes

This is a 6-digit numeric variable.

Description

CSAMREC is a Census recode that determines the total amount of child support the respondent actually received. The amount the respondent was supposed to receive is found in CSAMDUE. This variable is found on the parent record.

Users should note that there are occurrences of NIU values for CSAMREC when CSAMDUE is a positive value. These values exist in the original data, and appear to mean that no child support was received. However, there are still observations where CSAMREC is NIU and CSRECV indicates that some child support was received.

Blank values for this variable represent individuals who were not interviewed in April of the sample year.

This variable is part of the Child Support Supplement.

Comparability

This variable is comparable across available years, except for 1992, when there are true zero values. In other years, it appears that respondents who should have received child support, but did not receive any support were given an NIU value for CSAMREC.
