Description

PHONE indicates whether household members had access to a telephone. The interviewer first ascertained whether a telephone was inside the housing unit (code 3), and, if not, whether people in the household could be contacted via a telephone located elsewhere (code2).

PHONE was drawn from the final CPS interview, conducted 2-5 months before the ATUS interview. Telephone availability was not updated at the time of the ATUS interview.
