YTHACT2: YTH PARTICPATED 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 youth activity questions in the 2001 NHSDA differ from those in the 2000 NHSDA. The following variable, YTHACT2 was created by counting the number of positive responses reported over the following 4 youth activity questions: School-based (YESCHACT), community-based (YECOMACT), church or faith-based (YEFAIACT), or other activities (YEOTHACT). Youth respondents who reported participation in 2 or more activities were included in the two or more category regardless of how many other activity questions were answered. Youth respondents who did not answer 2 or more of the 4 youth activity questions with a "yes" or "no" response were coded as SAS missing. To be included in the zero or one category, a youth respondent must have answered 2 or more of the activity questions and reported they participated in either zero or one activity. YTHACT2 is not considered comparable with YOUTHACT from the 2000 NHSDA.
