See Appendix G and COR571 for references on items mh003rer-mh039rer.           

In February 2008, summary scores with means imputed for missing components
were added. The original summary scores remain. The score with means imputed
is named the same as the original with the letter "i" added as the 8th 
character of the name. This new variable is only constructed if at least 
half of the components receive a valid response, else the new summary 
measure is set to missing. The mean is calculated from the respondent's 
valid responses to the questions for the respective summary measure.

MH001REC is coded with a sum if at least one of the six items (17a,

extraversion can range from 1 (the lowest possible) to 36 (the highest

can range from 1 (the lowest possible) to 30 (the highest possible).

of valid responses is imputed for missing responses. See MH026RE for
the number of items included in the sum.
