YOUTHACT: RESP PARTICIPATED IN YOUTH ACTIVITIES
NOTE: The variables in this section are recoded variables that were created from one or more of the edited variables from the preceding section. The following variable, YOUTHACT, was created by counting the number of positive responses reported over the following ten activities: Youth center activities (YEYMCA), scouts (YESCOUTS), private lessons (YEPRVLES), team sports (YETEMSPT), 4-H club (YE4HCLUB), volunteer work (YEVOLUNT), church choir (YECHOIR), school clubs (YESCHCLB), band (YEBAND) or student government (YESTGOVT). Youth respondents who reported participation in 2 or more activities were included in the 2 or more category regardless of how many other questions were answered. Youth respondents who did not answer 5 or more of the 10 questions with a "yes" or "no" response were set to SAS missing and excluded from the analysis. To be included in the zero or one activity category, a youth respondent must have answered 5 or more of the questions and said they participated in either zero or one activity.
