Description

Dear US Team,

I am working with the life satisfaction (hsw, hsc, hlf, hap, hfr, hfm) and self-esteem (estk, estj, estc, esta, esti, este, estf, estb) measures for children across all years. In both questionnaire responses there are a couple participants (e.g. 2-5 participants) who have been coded as answering "9". I cannot find the response option in the documentation, could you give me more details about what the response "9" is?

Many thanks,
Amy

Dear Amy,

The value 9 is a code for "invalid answer" and should be recoded to missing for analysis. In the next release of the data these values will all be coded as -9 "missing" instead.

Best wishes,
Stephanie Auty - Understanding Society User Support Officer
