NOTE:  The remaining variables in this section are recoded
variables that were created from one or more of the preceding
edited variables from this same section.

The following variable, ACTALL, was created by
counting the number of positive responses reported
over all seventeen youth activities listed under
question YE-23 of the Youth Experiences module.
Missing data or unknown information was included
in the "No Activity" category.  The number of
activities that youth participated in may be
somewhat undercounted due to the fact that youth
who reported that they were not enrolled in school
in the past 12 months were not asked about their
participation in prevention activities through school.
1 No activities were marked 36,65768.4%
2 One activity was marked 2,4884.6%
3 Two activities were marked 2,7895.2%
4 Three or more activities were marked 11,62621.7%
Total 53,560 100%

Based upon 53,560 valid cases out of 53,560 total cases.
