Description

FBPL reports the U.S. state, the outlying U.S. area or territory, or the foreign country where the respondent's father was born. The codes for FBPL are the same as for BPL (Birthplace). As with BPL, FBPL has a general code distinguishing places available in multiple years and a detailed code noting places unique to certain years or indicating areas that are strictly subsets of other countries.

Comparability

The comparability problems presented by FBPL are largely the same as for BPL (Birthplace); see the comparability discussion for BPL. In the 1950-1970 U.S. Censuses, and the 1970 and 1990 Puerto Rican Censuses, respondents with fathers born in a U.S. state were simply to respond "United States;" specific birthplaces of fathers born in U.S. territories were reported. For comparable information on the birthplace of the respondent's mother see also MBPL.
