Description

COHABLASTSTARTMO reports the month the woman started living with her current or most recent husband or partner.

Note that January consistently has the highest frequency across samples. Due to the data entry format of the survey, if a respondent reported a year but not a month for when she started living with her current or most recent husband or partner, January is the default month for COHABLASTSTARTMO.

Enumerators were instructed to enter the date as January 1st, 2020 if the respondent did not give a response to the associated survey question. IPUMS has recoded these cases to "No response or missing".

The question associated with this variable was included in the female questionnaire.

Comparability

In some samples, enumerators are instructed to confirm the respondent's answer if she reported living with a husband or partner before age 15. See questionnaire text for more details.
