1995 AHEAD Core (Final Release, Version 2.0):
Expanded Code Frames for Helper Variables in A95E_R Collapsed
April 2, 2004
In prior releases, the OPN values used for certain questions about helpers which appear in the respondent-level file, A95E_R, were different than the OPN values in the Helper file, A95E_HP or Household-Member/Child files, A95PR_MC, A95CS_MC, A95D_MC and A95J_MC. The variables in the list below which are found in the file A95E_R contained special OPN values to distinguish married/partnered children from un-married/un-partnered children. Values of 997 were used to indicate persons not previously mentioned.
In order to facilitate merging this information, the OPN values for these variables have been recoded to be consistent with the OPN values found in the Helper and Household-Member/Child files.
