|Entry Cohort Info|
|Latest Release||August 2018 (v5)|
This version of the Child ZIP Codes dataset includes information from the 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2014 Core Interviews.
August 2018 Update: In previous versions of the 2010-2014 files, the OPN variable contained the child index number (MX054_MC / NX054_MC / OX054_MC) from the Core interview. This was incorrect; therefore the 2010-2014 files have been altered to include the correct OPN value. The child index number now appears in variable SEQNUM.
