MHMARLSEPY
Year separated from latest spouse

Codes

This is a 4-digit numeric variable.

Description

MHMARLSEPY indicates the year in which the respondent separated from their last spouse.

This variable is part of the CPS Fertility Supplement.

Comparability

MHMARLSEPY is limited to ever-married women in all available samples, except for 1980 where ever-married men are included.

In 1980 and 1990, the MHMARLSEPY variable includes women who have been married only once. These women also have values for "year of first separation" (MHMAR1SEPY); for these cases, values for MHMAR1SEPY and MHMARLSEPY are the same. In 1995, women who have been married only once are in-universe only for MHMARLSEPY.
