CBNSUBFAM
Number of subfamilies in household (original Census Bureau classification)

Description

CBSFTYPE reports the number of subfamilies as originally classified by the Census Bureau that the household contains. See the IPUMS subfamilies page for more information on subfamilies and their measurement.

Unlike the IPUMS analogue NSUBFAM, CBNSUBFAM is not based on the family interrelationship variables, and it does not identify unrelated subfamilies. Furthermore, the Census Bureau's procedures for identifying subfamilies are known to be unreliable, and only with the more recent ACS data do their procedures appear to yield consistent results.

CBNSUBFAM is useful mainly for users attempting to match the Census Bureau's summary files or published estimates; other users--particularly those analyzing change over time--are encouraged to use NSUBFAM.
