Comparability

Comparability across years and samples is affected by changes in the response categories. The 1970 and 1980 U.S. census samples and the 1980 PR sample are completely comparable. The 1970 PR sample identifies "charcoal" (code "8") as a cooking fuel instead of "coal or coke" (code "7"), which is the relatively comparable fuel identified in the 1970 U.S. sample and the 1980 samples. In the 1990 PR sample, the response categories changed more substantially. Only electricity and gas (not specified) were directly identified and the residual category "other" (code "10) subsumed all other types of previously identified cooking fuels (kerosene, liquid fuels, wood, charcoal, etc.), along with those originally identified as "other" in the earlier samples.
