Person number (IPUMS)

LINENO is a 2-digit numeric variable that records the household member's line number within the household.


LINENO is an IPUMS-constructed technical variable that numbers all persons within each household according to their order in the original data. The variable LINEORIG reports the original line number of a household member. The main difference between LINEORIG and LINENO is that values in LINENO are without duplicates and have been corrected when numbers in LINEORIG were skipped.


There are no comparability issues.
