Age moved to current place of residence

This variable is a 2-digit numeric variable that represents the age at moving except the following codes:


95 = Not interviewed (female questionnaire)
96 = Not interviewed (household questionnaire)
98 = No response or missing
99 = NIU (not in universe)


PLACECURMOVEAGE is an IPUMS-calculated variable to estimate the age the woman moved to her current place of residence. Place of residence refers to the city, town, village, or neighborhood, not the structure of residence. PLACECURMOVEAGE is the difference between the woman's age (AGE) and how long she has continuously living in her current place of residence (LIVEINPLACE).

Note that this variable is a calculated field, and the values for some cases conflict with variables such as PLACE1MOVEAGE, in that PLACECURMOVEAGE is sometimes younger than ages reported for moving to previous residences. If LIVEINPLACE is greater than AGE, instead of a negative value, PLACECURMOVEAGE is recoded to zero.

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