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The original variables in this module have been archived and replaced by a set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
non-normative 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 version:
