This is a 1-digit numeric variable.
PEPAR1TYP is a variable that indicates whether the respondent's first parent is a biological, step, or adoptive parent.
In 2019, the family relationship variables were revamped to improve measurement of same sex families and nontraditional family structures. As part of this restructuring, variables regarding mothers and fathers transitioned to parent 1 and parent 2. The second parent's line number is reported in PELNPAR1.
This variable is consistent in all years for which it is available.
Comparability with IPUMS-USA
