Codes and Frequencies
For all persons living with their mother in the household, RELMOM reports the type of relationship the person has to her/his mother. Please see the comparability tab for information about changes in response categories.
Beginning in 2013, the response categories for this variable were reduced. Biological and adoptive mother were collapsed into a single category "biological or adoptive"; the only other response category options beginning in 2013 are "step", "in-law", or "other, or unknown". Persons may condense response categories from previous years to create categories comparable to those available in 2013. Users should note that this change in response categories is not reflected in the original 2013 questionnaire documentation.
