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: Selected Sibling

A major change was made to variables rk029ssd - rk065ssd in 2004.  Previously
these variables could refer to:
  (1) A sibling who was selected in 1975 and still alive in 1992.
  (2) A sibling who was newly selected in 1993 due to death of 1975 select
      sibling.
  (3) A sibling who was newly chosen in 1993 due to noninterview of graduate
      in 1975.
      
Variable rk066sse indicated which of the proceeding 3 cases applied to the
data in variables rk029ssd - rk065ssd.

For the 2003- 2005 interviews, WLS staff agreed to follow only the sibling
who was originally selected.  Data for those siblings who fall into
category (2) above has been removed from the 1993 master data file.  That
data is available in a separate module - newsib92.  Newsib92 contains
only iduser and variables rk029ssd - rk065ssd for these 284 cases.  In the
master data set; codes for rk029ssd - rk065ssd were set to "inapplicable, no
living selected sibling" for these cases; and rk066sse is coded "6".

A random 1/3 sample of 1975 selected siblings were eligible for interview in 
1977; and all siblings who were randomly selected in 1975 were eligible for 
interview in 1994. Thus the selected sibling who is reported about in this 
graduate sibling module is the same as the sibling respondent in the 1977 and 
1994 sibling surveys.  

rk001ss             Status of 1975 selected sibling.

rk002ssc - rk027ssc Deceased 1975 selected sibling:

                         respondent lived in the same house until
                         respondent was age 16, and if not, why.

For siblings who were alive during the 1992-93 graduate interview,
but died prior to the 1993-94 sibling interview - a short closeout
interview was administered. Occupation, date, place, and cause
of death were determined from this closeout interview. These
18 siblings are coded 4 for RK001SS as of April 1999.
