Codes and Frequencies
RACE reports the racial category of all household members. Beginning in 2003, respondents could report more than one race.
RACE was collected at the time of the final CPS interview, 2-5 months before the ATUS interview.
For ATUS respondents interviewed between January and May of 2003, RACE values were hand-imputed from previously collected information on race. Q2RACE identifies cases that were hand-imputed. RACE was not imputed for non-respondents or members of ATUS respondents' households. Comparability for all persons across all years can be achieved by using five major categories: "White only," "Black only," "American Indian/Alaskan Native," "Asian or Pacific Islander," and "Two or more races." However, the category "Two or more races" was not available from January to May of 2003.
