CCHS 2012 Mental Health


In the CCHS 2012 Mental health - variable MHE_06C, the question reads “… on a scale of 0 to 10 …” – but the reported (and observed) frequencies include a value 11 (which has the highest number of respondents: 136). Why is this?\


In the questionnaire there is an interviewer note for MHE_Q06C that states if they do not go to work/school, they should select 11 to represent "Not Applicable." This should have been indicated in the data dictionary so we will add it to the errata.
