Tax filer status - 1980-2020
Unicon Corporation made the following notes about this variable:
The value of this variable is withheld by the Census in the fall ASEC release of the most current file. In winter, the Census will issue a revised file with the value included.
For a discussion on tax and benefit variables, refer to Census paper P60-186RD, 'Measuring the Effect of Benefits and Taxes on Income and Poverty: 1992'.
This variable first appears on the CPS file in 1991. However, noncash benefits data for the earlier years were made available on-line from the Census. Unicon merged the extra data onto the original data using the following match variables: 1980-1987 hhid, fampos and perid 1988B-1990 hhid, famposo and perido Unfortunately, it is not possible to create the famposo and perido variables for 1988 (per Census Bureau, 12/95). Therefore, the additional data file for this year was only prepared for the 1988 bridge file.
