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

NOTE:  The following 22 variables are among all adolescent
respondents who were asked the respective questions and are
not confined to those respondents who were ultimately
classified as having a Major Depressive Episode (MDE) in
their lifetime or past year.  To produce estimates among
adolescents with MDE, the analysis will need to be
restricted by either the lifetime MDE variable (YMDELT) or
the past year MDE variable (YMDEYR).

NOTE:  The following five variables were not renamed in 2008
since they were originally only defined for youth;
therefore, no changes are needed for these in order to
generate analyses across years.

NOTE:  The following four variables make up the four role
domains (chores at home, school or work, close relationships
with family, and social life) of the Sheehan Disability
Scale (SDS), which measures the impact of a disorder on an
adolescent's life.
1 None (YOPSHMGT=0) 1240.2%
2 Mild (YOPSHMGT=1,2,3) 3230.6%
3 Moderate (YOPSHMGT=4,5,6) 5881.1%
4 Severe (YOPSHMGT=7,8,9) 3720.7%
5 Very Severe (YOPSHMGT=10) 920.2%
