YTHACT2: YTH 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, 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 "2 or More Activities"
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
"None or 1 Activity" category, a youth respondent must have
answered 2 or more of the activity questions and reported
they participated in either zero or one activity.
