Variable Label: Money left over after liquidating and paying all debts


DM_FN12 Suppose you (and your spouse or partner) cashed in all your checking and savings accounts, stocks and bonds, real estate, sold your home, your vehicles, and all of your valuable possessions. Then suppose you put that money toward paying off all your mortgage and all your other loans, debts, and credit cards. Would you have any money left over after paying your debts or would you still owe money? (Your best estimate is fine.)

This constructed variable combines the long form and short form versions of the question. For more information, please consult the processing notes (PDF 456K).
