      Status -- These two fields seem to denote occupancy and marital status, although for many women, both fields contain marital status, unless they are property owners. Can anyone sort this out for me so I can give the correct info here? The letters "t" seems to mean "tenant"; "o" and "own" are "owner"; "mf" and "mw" are possibly "married female" and "married woman" (why the difference?); "b" presumably for "bachelor"; etc.
