For sample children ages 5-17 who have ever been suspended, excluded, or expelled from school, EXPELTIMTP reports the time unit (day, week, month, or year) that corresponds to the number of time units since the student was last suspended, excluded, or expelled from school. EXPELTIMTP should be used in conjunction with EXPELTIMNO, which reports the corresponding frequency stated by the respondent.

EXPELTIMTP is part of the Child Health supplement, first released in 1981. This supplement includes a number of questions on child's schooling. For more information and related variables, please see GOSCHOOLEV, or use the IPUMS NHIS search function and drop-down menus.
