NH025REC is coded with a sum if at least one of the five items (39i,
39m,39r,39x,39z) recieved a valid response. The degree of neuroticism
can range from 1 (the lowest possible) to 30 (the highest possible).
See NH025REI for an imputed version of this variable for which mean
of valid responses is imputed for missing responses. See NH026RE for
the number of items included in the sum.

nh025rei: Summary score for neuroticism, mean of valid items substituted for missing items.
