EVICTED5YR indicates whether household members were evicted from/kicked out of their home in the past 5 years.

The information in EVICTED5YR is taken from the household record and applies to regular household residents, not temporary visitors. Researchers may wish to exclude visitors using the RESIDENT variable (with visitors coded "2") when women, children, or births are the unit of analysis, and using the HHRESIDENT variable when household members are the unit of analysis.


EVICTED5YR has no comparability problems.
