Description

CSLEGCUS indicates whether a court or judge ordered joint legal custody for a child who had one biological parent living outside the household. This variable is found on the parent record.

The supplement questionnaire defines the term joint legal custody as both parents having the right to make decisions concerning the child.

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 that the 1992 sample does not give "No" as a possible response. Instead, observations where the other parent did not have joint legal custody are coded as NIU in the original data.

Universe

  • Persons with children in the household who do not live with both of their parents.
