In addition to these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection:
- Performed consistency checks.
- Standardized missing values.
- Performed recodes and/or calculated derived variables.
- Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes.

accurately reflect the scope of the survey. Corresponding
documentation files have been edited to reflect the change in title.
