Variable Label: # of episodes in the past 12 months


link to respondent booklet (RB, PAGES 6-7)

When I use the word "episode" in the next questions, I mean a time lasting [(several days/two weeks)] or longer when nearly every day you were [(sad/or/discouraged/or/uninterested)] and also had some of the other problems (IF R CAN READ: on pages 6-7 / IF R CANNOT READ: we just reviewed. The episode ends when you no longer have the problems for two weeks in a row. With this definition in mind, how many different episodes did you have in the past 12 months?

A discrepancy exists between the question text in the surveys. You may wish to compare question text to determine how it affects the variable results.
