Editing Procedure


RENTMEAL (Meals included in rent)

ACS Years: 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015

ACS editing procedure:

Among units that are rented for cash (OWNERSHP) or are vacant but rented or for rent (VACANCY), if the reported value for whether the rent included meals is "Blank, Don't know, Refused, or Bad Value" it will be allocated from another unit with a non-missing value for RENTMEAL. When this happens, the flag will show that the value is allocated (QRENTMEA).

Among units that are owner-occupied unit (OWNERSHP) or vacant units that are not rented or for rent, if there is a value for RENTMEAL, it will be replaced with "Not in universe."
