This variable is not available for any of the currently selected samples.
MHMARLSEPM indicates the month in which the respondent separated from their last spouse.
This variable is part of the CPS Fertility Supplement.
MHMARLSEPM is limited to ever-married women in all available samples, except for 1980 where ever-married men are included.
In 1980 and 1990, the MHMARLSEPM variable includes women who have been married only once. These women also have values for "month of first separation" (MHMAR1SEPM); for these cases, values for MHMAR1SEPM and MHMARLSEPM are the same. In 1995, women who have been married only once are in-universe only for MHMARLSEPM.
- Jun 1980: Persons 15-75 who have ever been married.
- Jun 1990 and Jun 1995: Persons 15-65 who have ever been married.
