FAMSIZE
Number of persons in family

Description

FAMSIZE reports the number of persons in a family. FAMSIZE is generated by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, rather than based on a direct question to survey respondents.

 

A MEPS family may include foster children, as well as unmarried persons living together who consider themselves a family unit (these are not included in the CPS family definition). Single persons who do not live with a relative nor a person identified as a "significant other" are assigned a family size of one.
