This identifier is an unique ID number for each person in a Household/Dwelling.
Person IDs only relate to the people within the selected household (see Household ID [ABSHID]). For an identifier that uniquely identifies a person throughout the CURF, refer to Record ID [ABSRID].
Person IDs are assigned at the Household/Dwelling level. This is to ensure that someone within a dwelling can be more easily tracked across all months in the survey, regardless of how the household and family composition changes over time.
For example, a 21 year old dependent student who gets married remains 'Person 3' of 'Household X' across all months in the survey, rather than 'Person 3' of 'Family 1' before the marriage and 'Person 1' of 'Family 2' after the marriage.
Each person in a special dwelling is assigned their own unique Household ID, so they do not need a Person ID and are assigned a special value (see Residence Status [URSTATC]).
These record identifiers form the basis of the CURFs hierarchical structure, which is explored in more detail in File Structure and Identifiers.
