NOTE:  Variables nv001re - nv024re were coded from question 47.  Question 47
       is a table with rows a - d.  The rows list tasks for which the 
       respondent may have given help.  The first column is labeled "no one" 
       and the remainder of the columns list persons to whom help may have been
       given. Variables nv025re - nv052re were coded from question 48.  
       Question 48 is a table with rows a - d.  The rows list tasks for which 
       the respondent may have received help.  The first column is labeled "no
       one" and the remainder of the columns list persons from whom the 
       respondent may have received help.
       
       Variables nv055re - nv072re were coded from question 49.  Question 49 is
       a table with rows a - c.  The rows list the kind of help the respondent
       could ask for.  The first column is "no one" and the remainder of the
       columns list persons  whom the respondent could ask for this help.
       If the respondent did not check any boxes in an entire question, all
       associated variables are coded 9. If the respondent checked at least one
       box in a question, it was assumed that only boxes that applied to the 
       respondent were checked.

NOTE:  This text refers to items nv001re-nv052re:

            We are interested in the help and support that you 
            receive from or give to people (other than a spouse
