HHCURRMARR (HV116) reports the household member's marital/union status as "Never married," "Currently married," or "Formerly married."
"Never married" includes household members who have never lived with a partner. "Currently married" includes household members who are married and those who are not formally married but are living with a partner. "Formerly married" includes household members who are widowed, divorced, separated, or who have formerly lived with a partner.
In samples where the only question asked relates to whether the household member has ever been married (not cohabiting), the responses are coded "10" for "Ever-married" and "0" for "Never married."
