MOMLOC
Mother's location in household

MOMLOC is a 3-digit numeric variable.

Codes

0 = No mother of this person present in the household.
1 or higher = The person number of this person's mother

Description

MOMLOC is a constructed variable that indicates whether or not the person's mother lived in the same household and, if so, gives the person number of the mother (see PERNUM). MOMLOC makes it easy for researchers to link the characteristics of children and their (probable) mothers.

The method by which probable child-mother links are identified is described in PARRULE.

The general design of MOMLOC and other constructed variables follows the methods developed for IPUMS-USA "Family Interrelationships," but the details vary significantly.

Note: MOMLOC identifies social relationships (such as stepmother and adopted mother) as well as biological relationships. The variable STEPMOM is designed to identify some of these social relationships. To restrict MOMLOC to biological mothers, such as for own children fertility estimation, MOMLOC should be reset to zero when STEPMOM is greater than zero.

GENERAL
Spain

Comparability — General

MOMLOC is relatively comparable across samples, but the information available with which to infer the links often differs. See PARRULE.

Each sample that contains MOMLOC has a corresponding variable, POPLOC, that identifies fathers, and SPLOC, that identifies spouses.

No constructed family interrelationship variables are available for the individual-level samples that do not contain entire households of persons (see the samples page "notes" column.).

Comparability — Spain [top]

The data for Spain 2011 are unlike the data from other samples. They are actual census responses, not constructed by IPUMS. These data will be replaced by IPUMS-constructed pointers in the near future. The pointers from the census will still be available as unharmonized variables.
