COUPLETYPE
Householder couple type

Description

COUPLETYPE reports the type of relationship the householder shares with their significant other. Beginning in the 2019 ACS/PRCS, COUPLETYPE replaced SSMC (same-sex married couples) to provide a more comprehensive variable capturing different relationship types. COUPLETYPE includes householders with both married and unmarried partners in same-sex and opposite-sex relationships.

User Note: Although COUPLETYPE replaces SSMC starting in the 2019 ACS/PRCS surveys, IPUMS will continue to make SSMC available by integrating COUPLETYPE into the SSMC categories. See the variable description for SSMC for more information about this variable.
