WLS Codebooks and Flowcharts

Note: Codebooks contain frequency data from the private data release. For some variables, these differ from the frequencies in the public release. Variables that differ between the public and private versions include "(not available on public release)" as part of the variable description, or a note indicating the difference between the public and private versions.

Phone - nonnormative screener

The nonnormative screener was a part of the kids' roster that sought to
identify children with various developmental disabilities and long-term,
serious mental illness. These analysis variables are the final result of using
the screener, call-backs, and other parts of the WLS to identify the condition
that child has. For details on the identification of nonnormative children, see
COR 1018a.

The original variables in this module have been archived and replaced by a set
of new and improved measures. The updated version were based on a comprehensive
review of individual cases. The updates include (1) changes in the nonnormative
status of some children reported in the child roster, or (2) changes in the
specific conditions of some children. As a result, the numbers of nonnormative
children each respondent had at the time of interview have been changed for
some cases as well. For details on changes in the updated version, see 
COR 1018b.

The updated verson:

Note: This variable is based on a detailed screener that was used to identify children with a long-term, severe depression. Long-term, severe depression is used to refer to children that were either hospitalized for depression or suffered from an impairment of daily functions as a result of their depression. In this updated version, postpartum depression IS included. There is only one postpartum depression case and it was not included in depression group in the old/archived version (GD302). However, in this updated version, we decided to include the case in depression group because postpartum depression is limiting daily functions.
