Comparability

This variable is fully comparable across years, although the low frequency of affirmative responses between 1850 and 1880 indicates that recent marriages were underreported for these years. See MARMONTH for information about the month of marriage for persons married during the 12 months preceding the 1870 census.

After the above edits have been made for all household members, a further set of edits are then performed.

Prior to 2013, this set of edits applies if the household contains male-female married couples in the same subfamily with different values for if they got married in the past year (MARRINYR). When this happens, the male value for MARRINYR will be replaced with the female's value. In 2013 and later, this step also applies to same-sex couples. For same-sex couples, the spouse's value for MARRINYR will be replaced with the householder's value.
