Current Citizenship Status - Appendix 3

Variable Created


This program creates a variable summarizing the respondent's citizenship status as of the survey date. Status is coded as citizen, born in the U.S.; citizen, naturalized; applicant for naturalization; permanent resident; applicant for residence; or other. This variable was last created in Round 15.

Note that a similar Round 1 variable, CV_CITIZENSHIP, was created using data from the Parent Questionnaire. Users who need more information on the creation of this variable should contact NLS User Services.
