For sample persons under 18, PLACEBORN reports the setting in which the sample person was born. Response categories include a hospital, birthing center, home, motor vehicle or in transit, and other.


In 1981 this question was asked of sample persons under age 18 with a biological parent as a respondent. In 1988 the universe expanded to include all sample persons under age 18. This may affect frequencies and users should be cautious when comparing frequencies across samples.
