V081103: HHList.3. Respondent: Latino status

Selected Respondent: Latino status

Notes: This represents information given in the household listing (screener). Before an interview could be conducted, the screener was completed by an adult household member (called 'the informant'), who listed all adult (17 years old or older) household members. The informant also provided age, race, gender, Latino status, citizenship status, and relationship to the informant for each listed member. The random selection of Respondent was made among the screener's eligible household members (citizens age 18 or older by October 30, 2008). Categories in HHList.3 are the categories that were available to the interviewer for coding the informant's description of each household member.

Notes: Only when the informant is also the selected Respondent will HHList.3 represent a Respondent's self-identification of Latino status. Respondents having Hispanic identification at either HHList.3 [code 1] or in Pre demographic-section items Y24a-Y24e/Y27/Y28a were flagged in the Post preload (B2_) as Hispanic Respondents for Post-election questions B2a- B2b, K1b-K1b1 (which were administered to Hispanic Respondents only). Relevant Pre demographic items are: Y24a-Y24e. R identifies his/her racial group(s) [coded] Y25. R identifies his/her ethnicity [open] Y27. IWR checkpoint, any Hispanic ethnic mention Y28a. R answers whether he/she has Hispanic background; asked only if Y27 is coded No.

Notes: Respondent's Latino status as identified in HHList.3 was used in the construction of both pairs of post-stratified weights, WT.1 and WT.2 (centered at mean 1.0), and WT.1a and WT.2a (not centered).
