Occasionally, PSID creates auxiliary data files that include special generated variables. These variables are not available in the Data Center.

The 1968-1985 Relationship file contains information about the relationship, on a pair-wise basis, of all individuals who were ever part of, or derived from, the same original 1968 household. Each record on the file contains variables indicating relationship of a pair of individuals in each of the eighteen years 1968-1985. Typically, the analyst will wish to merge additional information about the persons and their families from the PSID's 1968-1985 cross-year individual file, provided with the Relationship file, and the 1968 to 1985 family files.

The ZIP file contains two ASCII data files, associated SAS, SPSS and OSIRIS data definition statements, RTF codebooks and an ASCII readme file.
