This variable is not available for any of the currently selected samples.
CSREG describes how often child support payments were received last year. This variable is found on the parent record.
This variable is part of the Child Support Supplement.
For a similar variable available after 1992, see CSTIME. CSTIME reports how many child support payments were received on time in the last year.
In samples from 1979-1986 only female respondents were asked CSREG regarding children with fathers who lived outside the household. In 1992, parents were asked CSREG regarding children with either parent living outside the household.
In the 1992 sample there are 3,444 respondents who are NIU for all Child Support Supplement variables despite meeting known supplement universe requirements.
This variable is otherwise comparable across available years.
- 1979-1986: Divorced or never-married females aged 18 or older who have children with a father outside the household and were supposed to receive child support payments last year
- 1992: Persons in month-in-samples 1-3 and 5-7 who received any child support payments last year.
