V2409 W1. Marital Stress Index. 3-item. Imputed
Note: V602, V615 and V621 have been combined to create this Wave 1 3-item
Marital Stress Index.
Note: This index is equivalent to V6409, V10910 and V13210.

How index was constructed: (1) Two of the input variables (V615 and V621) were reverse coded.
(2) Then, for two of the input variables (V602) and the reverse-coded version of V621, the metric
was expanded from 1-5 to 1-7. (3) The mean of the three modified input variables was then
obtained for cases having at least 2 non-missing values on the three input variables. The index
value is this mean value. This index is not standardized.
How imputed: Case-by-case imputations were done for the 3 cases missing on two or more of the
Marital Stress input items. V1=1086 was imputed based on R’s response to the one non-missing
Wave 1 Marital Stress input item and R’s responses to the other Wave 1 Marital Relationship
items. V1=1531 was imputed as the Mean for V2409. V1= 1993 was imputed based on R’s
Wave 2 Marital Stress Index (V6409) score.
V2491 W1. Imputation Flag for V2409. (W1. Marital Stress Index. 3-item)

Now we want you to remember what (FILL R) was like in FILL (YEAR OF LAST IW) and to compare it with
what (he/ she) is like now. I will read situations where (he/ she) has to use (his/ her) memory or intelligence and we
would like you to indicate whether this has improved, not much changed, or gotten worse since FILL (YEAR OF

if in FILL (YEAR OF LAST IW) (he/ she) always forgot where (he/ she) had left things, and (he/ she) still does,
then this would be considered "not much change".

Note: These Income Sources variables (V12604-V12609) have been recoded into a set of
dummy variables (V13131-V13140) that are coded by Type of Income Source.
That is, they indicate whether the Respondent has a particular type of income source
(e.g., did Respondent and/ or Spouse R receive any income from “Wages, Salary, Commissions,
or Tips” in the last 12 months, etc.).
In general, V13131-V13140 should be used in analyses as a measure of Income Sources.
Q13a. In order to get an accurate picture of your FILL (and your husband's/ and your wife's) income, it helps to
know the different sources of income you FILL (and your husband/ and your wife) may have had during the past
12 months. We do not need detailed amounts, just whether you FILL (and your husband/ and your wife) had any
income from the sources I will mention.

Section X Cleaning Notes
All Variables:
Consistency checks were done for all Section X variables. Respondents who were not interviewed in
Wave 4 (V12007=.A) were assigned the missing value code .A (Inapplicable). Wave 4 non-interviews
accounted for 1,830 of the missing values found in each variable in this section. An individual case
known to be invalid throughout Wave 4(v1=730) was also set to ‘.A’ for each variable (it is one of the
N=1830 cases inapplicable on the Section X variables). Twelve cases (v1=142, 313, 332, 490, 798,
1321, 1900, 2199, 2426, 3210, 3306, and 3526) identified as partial interviews (v11555=5) were found
to be missing throughout Section X; these cases were assigned the missing value code .N (Not
Ascertained). Any missing values not accounted for by the conditions described above were further
investigated on a case by case basis, primarily via the use of the Interviewer Remarks file, though no
applicable remarks were found for this section. All variables were renamed to a pre-specified block of
V#’s and all variables were relabeled using the following template: “W#.X#.VARNAME.Abridged
Question Text,” where W# represents the ACL Wave number, X# represents the question number (ie
X12), and VARNAME represents the original variable name, followed by an abridged version of the
question text. The Section X variables are described below.

This index (V13001) is a Guttman-type scale, where Respondents
who reported being functionally impaired on Bed or Bath were not asked
about the next lower levels of impairment, and so on.
This index corresponds to the Wave 1 through Wave 3 Functional Health indices
(V2604, V6604 and V10911).
Imputations: One case was imputed for this index.
This case was missing on all the Functional Health Input Items:
V12225-V12235. A case-by-case imputation was done for this case
based on the Respondent’s Wave 1 through Wave 3 Functional Health
Status and on her other Wave 4 Health Conditions and Age, etc.
All other cases that were missing (“Don’t Know” or “Not Ascertained”)
on one or more of the Functional Health Input Items had enough
non-missing responses on the Functional Health Input Items to determine the
Respondent’s overall Functional Health level for Wave 4.
See V13081 (Imputation Flag for V13001) for information that identifies
the case that was imputed for V13001.

Note: This question was included in both the ACL Wave 4 Self-Report Questionnaire (N = 1692) and
the ACL Wave 4 Proxy Questionnaire (N=95).
Use V12007 (ACL Wave 4 Self-Report (Code=1) versus Proxy Report (Code=2) filter variable)
to separate the “Self-Rated Health” responses (N = 1692) from the “Proxy-Rated Health” responses (N=95).
Note: See V13082 to identify which cases were imputed for this variable (V13002).

How imputed: Imputations are based on case-by-case (clinical) checks of (a) ACL4 Interviewer Remarks file,
and (b) any relevant response patterns in ACL Wave 1, Wave 2, Wave 3, and Wave 4 data.
That is, the other ACL Wave 4 Health measures were checked, as well as the Wave 1, Wave 2 , and Wave 3
Health measures and the Wave 1, Wave 2, and Wave 3 Self-Rated Health scores. Plus, the Respondent’s Age
Race and Sex were also factored into the final imputation.

This variable (V13023) is calculated as follows: BMI = weight(kilograms)/height(meters)-squared.
Specifically, V13023 = (V13022 * .45359) / [(V2610 * .0254) * (V2610 * .0254)].
V13023 is the ACL Wave 4 equivalent of V2623, V6623 and V10923, BMI for Wave 1, Wave 2, and Wave 3, respectively.
Note: Seven cases that have Wave 4 Body Weight (V13022) were missing on Wave 1 Height (V2610). The sex-specific
mean heights (70 inches for males; 64 inches for females) were used to calculate Wave 4 BMI (V13023). V13092 = 3
provides an identifying code for these 7 cases.
Thirty-nine cases were missing on Wave 4 Body Weight (V13022) – 4 males and 35 females. Wave 4 BMI (V13023) was
imputed for these 39 cases using the following OLS Regression technique.
(Males) W4 BMI = W1 Race (dummies), W1 Age (dummies), W1 BMI, W2 BMI, W2 Interview/Non-Interview
(dummy), W3 BMI, W3 Interview/Non-Interview (dummy).
(Females) W4 BMI = W1 Race (dummies), W1 Age (dummies), W1 BMI, W2 BMI, W2 Interview/Non-Interview
(dummy), W3 BMI, W3 Interview/Non-Interview (dummy).
Then, after a W4 BMI estimate was obtained for each case that was missing (Don’t Know or Not Ascertained) on W4 Body
Weight (V13022), a random residual was added to each case’s estimate. These random residuals were calculated from the
sex-specific OLS regression residuals from the above regression models.
The random residuals were calculated as follows.
Random Residual = Random Deviation Units * Standard Error of the Estimate, where Random Deviation Units
were randomly selected from the Normal Distribution. The Standard Error of the Estimate is calculated as follows.
Standard Error of the Estimate = Standard Deviation of the Residuals divided by the square root of the degrees of
freedom, where the degrees of freedom are df = N – K, where N = Number of cases in the regression model and K
= Number of parameters (IV’s plus intercept) in the regression model.

How imputed: The 10 Income Sources dummy variables (V13131-V13140) were imputed
in the same way. Most of the cases imputed for these Income Sources variables were
“Don’t Know” or “Not Ascertained” on the first mention of Income Sources variables (V12604)
and were blank or “Inapplicable” on all subsequent mentions for Income Sources (V12605-V12609).
Thus, these case were imputed for the full set of Income Sources dummies (V13131-V13140).
The imputations were done on a case-by-case basis. “Yes” responses were imputed
only when it could reasonably be inferred that the Respondent had that source of Income
at ACL Wave 4. Thus, if a Respondent or Spouse was Working at ACL Wave 4, then s/ he
was coded as “Yes” for received Income from “Wages, Salary, Commissions, or Tips”
in the past 12 months (V13131 = Code 1). Similarly, if a Respondent (or Spouse) was “Retired”
at Wave 4 and that Respondent (or Spouse) was “Retired” in previous waves and received
Income from Social Security Payments, then the case was coded as “Yes” for received “Social
Security Payments” in the past 12 months (V13132 = Code 1). Similar imputations were made
for “Retirement Pay” Income (V13133), “Rent, Interest, Dividends,” Income (V13134),
and “Disability, Unemployment Compensation, SSI” Income (V13135). If no reasonable
inference could be made that the Respondent had that source of Income at ACL Wave 4,
then a default imputation was made that “No” the Respondent did not have that source of
Income at Wave 4. If no reasonable inferences could be made for any of the 10 Income Source
dummy variables, then the case was left as “Don’t Know” or “Not Ascertained”.

How index was constructed:
This is a standardized index that takes the mean across the 11 input items (Questions H1a – H1h,
H1k, H1m – H1n (i.e., V12325-V12335). Questions H1d and H1g (V12328 and V12331) were
reverse-coded before being averaged in with the other 9 CES-D items. All 11 items were
standardized using the Wave 1 weighted means and standard deviations before being combined.
The final index (V13201) was re-standardized, after the items were combined, using the Wave 1
weighted index mean and standard deviation.
How imputed:
The 50% Rule was used to create this index. That is, if a case had non-missing values on at least
50% or more of the input items (here 6 or more items) then the index value for that case was the
mean of the non-missing items. N = 8 cases were missing on more than 50% of the input items.
These cases were imputed using the following OLS Regression technique: W4 CES-D-11 values
were estimated based on Sex, Age (dummies), W3 CES-D-11 value, W4 Functional Health, W4
Self-Rated Health and W4 LOT Optimism scale value.

How index was constructed: This is the number of “Incorrect” responses to V12425, V12427,
V13215, V13216, and V12436. Cases “Don’t Know” or “Not Ascertained” for any of the
input variables (V12425, V12427, V13215, V13216, and V12436) were assumed to be “Incorrect”
on that response.
How imputed: Nine cases that were ACL Wave 4 Partial Interview cases and that did not
complete the Cognitive Impairment questions were imputed using OLS Regression estimates
based on the following model: W4 Cognitive Impairment = Sex (V103), Race (V2057-V2058),
Age (V2000), Age-Squared (V2000*V2000), continuous Education (V2007), and Wave 1,
Wave 2, and Wave 3 Cognitive Impairment scores (V3408, V7408, V10917). If a case was
a Non-Respondent at Wave 2 or Wave 3, the Cognitive Impairment score was not available
for that wave, of course, so the regression model was run without that predictor for that case.
Seven other cases were “Don’t Know” or “Not Ascertained” on all or most of the 5
Wave 4 Cognitive Impairment items. These cases were not assumed to be incorrect on all 5
impairment items, but instead the Wave 4 Cognitive Impairment score for these cases was
imputed based on the Respondent’s Age, Education, and pattern of Cognitive Impairment
responses at ACL Waves 1, 2 and 3.

How index was constructed: This Informal Social Integration Index (V13205) was constructed from
two input variables, V12129 (Wave 4 How Often Talk on Telephone with Friends, Neighbors, Relatives), and
V12130 (Wave 4 How Often Get Together with Friends, Neighbors or Relatives).
In step 1, V12129 and V12130 were reverse-coded. Then, in step 2, the reverse-coded versions of
V12129 and V12130 were standardized using the ACL Wave 1 weighted means and standard deviations for
the wave 1 versions of these 2 items (after they were reverse-coded).
The weighted means and standard deviations used were as follows:
V12129 Reversed: mean=4.5585, SD= 1.3629; and V12130 Reversed: mean=4.4228, SD=1.4430.
In step 3, the mean was calculated for these 2 standardized input variables, using the 50% rule
for missing data. That is, to calculate a mean for a specific case, the case had to have non-missing
values on at least 50% of the input items (here at least 1 of the input items).
In step 4, the overall index values obtained in step 3 were standardized, using the Wave 1
weighted means and standard deviations for the Wave 1 Informal Social Integration Index.
The weighted mean and standard deviation used here are: mean= + 0.00016, SD= 0.8115.
No cases were imputed for this index. That is, no cases were missing on both of the 2 input items
(V12129 and V12130) used to create this index.

How index was constructed: This Formal Social Integration Index (V13206) was constructed from
two input variables, V12131 (Wave 4 How Often Attend Meetings or Programs of Groups, Clubs, Organizations),
and V13217 (Wave 4 How Often R Attends Religious Services, imputed).
In step 1, V12131 and V13217 were reverse-coded. Then, in step 2, the reverse-coded versions of
V12131 and V13217 were standardized using the ACL Wave 1 weighted means and standard deviations for
the wave 1 versions of these 2 items (after they were reverse-coded).
The weighted means and standard deviations used were as follows:
V12131 Reversed: mean=2.7761, SD= 1.8026; and V13217 Reversed: mean=3.3117, SD=1.7951.
In step 3, the mean was calculated for these 2 standardized input variables, using the 50% rule
for missing data. That is, to calculate a mean for a specific case, the case had to have non-missing
values on at least 50% of the input items (here at least 1 of the input items).
In step 4, the overall index values obtained in step 3 were standardized, using the Wave 1
weighted means and standard deviations for the Wave 1 Formal Social Integration Index.
The weighted mean and standard deviation used here are: mean= - 0.0006, SD= 0.8322.
How imputed: See the write-up, below, of how V13217 (“How often does R attend religious services”)
was imputed. Once the N=17 cases were imputed for V13217, no cases were missing on both
of the input items (V12131 and V13217). Thus, no further imputations were needed for this scale (V13206),
once the 50% rule for non-missing data was applied in constructing this index. See V13286 to identify
the cases that were imputed for V13217 (and, thus, for V13206).

How index was constructed: This Spouse Positive Social Support Index (V13207) was constructed from
two input variables, V12153 (Wave 4 Spouse Makes R Feel Loved and Cared For), and
V12154 (Wave 4 Spouse Willing to Listen).
In step 1, V12153 and V12154 were reverse-coded. Then, in step 2, the reverse-coded versions of
V12153 and V12154 were standardized using the ACL Wave 1 weighted means and standard deviations for
the wave 1 versions of these 2 items (after they were reverse-coded).
The weighted means and standard deviations used were as follows:
V12153 Reversed: mean=4.5046, SD= 0.7651; and V12154 Reversed: mean=4.0732, SD=1.0478.
In step 3, the mean was calculated for these 2 standardized input variables, using the 50% rule
for missing data. That is, to calculate a mean for a specific case, the case had to have non-missing
values on at least 50% of the input items (here at least 1 of the input items).
In step 4, the overall index values obtained in step 3 were standardized, using the Wave 1
weighted means and standard deviations for the Wave 1 Spouse Positive Social Support Index.
The weighted mean and standard deviation used here are: mean= - 0.00146, SD= 0.8772.
How imputed: One case that was missing (DK or NA) on both of the input items
(V12153 and V12154) was imputed using an OLS Regression estimate based on the following model:
W4 Spouse Positive Social Support Index = Sex (V103), continuous Age (V2000), and Wave 1
and Wave 3 Spouse Positive Social Support Index scores (V2204 and V10904), and
Wave 4 Marital Stress Index score (V13210).
This case did not have a Spouse Positive Social Support Index score for Wave 2.

V12168 (Wave 4 Child(ren) Willing to Listen).
In step 1, V12167 and V12168 were reverse-coded. Then, in step 2, the reverse-coded versions of
V12167 and V12168 were standardized using the ACL Wave 1 weighted means and standard deviations for
the wave 1 versions of these 2 items (after they were reverse-coded).
The weighted means and standard deviations used were as follows:
V12167 Reversed: mean=4.4132, SD= 0.8697; and V12168 Reversed: mean=3.7848, SD=1.1953.
In step 3, the mean was calculated for these 2 standardized input variables, using the 50% rule
for missing data. That is, to calculate a mean for a specific case, the case had to have non-missing
values on at least 50% of the input items (here at least 1 of the input items).
In step 4, the overall index values obtained in step 3 were standardized, using the Wave 1
weighted means and standard deviations for the Wave 1 Child Positive Social Support Index.
The weighted mean and standard deviation used here are: mean= - 0.00236, SD= 0.8826.
How imputed: Nine cases that were missing (DK or NA) on both of the input items
(V12167 and V12168) were imputed using OLS Regression estimates based on the following model:
W4 Child Positive Social Support Index = Sex (V103), continuous Age (V2000), and Wave 1,
Wave 2, and Wave 3 Child Positive Social Support Index scores (V2207, V6207 and V10905), and
Wave 4 Parental Stress Index score (V13211).
If a case was a Non-Respondent at Wave 2 and/ or Wave 3, the Child Positive Social Support score
was not available for that wave (those waves), of course, so the regression model was run without that
predictor (those predictors) for that case.
Similarly, if a Respondent did not have any children at Wave 1, Wave 2 and/ or Wave 3, the
Child Positive Social Support score was not available for that wave (those waves), of course, so the
regression model was run without that predictor (those predictors) for that case.

V12173 (Wave 4 Friend/ Relative Willing to Listen).
In step 1, V12172 and V12173 were reverse-coded. Then, in step 2, the reverse-coded versions of
V12172 and V12173 were standardized using the ACL Wave 1 weighted means and standard deviations for
the wave 1 versions of these 2 items (after they were reverse-coded).
The weighted means and standard deviations used were as follows:
V12172 Reversed: mean=4.0253, SD= 0.9121; and V12173 Reversed: mean=3.7486, SD=1.0826.
In step 3, the mean was calculated for these 2 standardized input variables, using the 50% rule
for missing data. That is, to calculate a mean for a specific case, the case had to have non-missing
values on at least 50% of the input items (here at least 1 of the input items).
In step 4, the overall index values obtained in step 3 were standardized, using the Wave 1
weighted means and standard deviations for the Wave 1 Friend/ Relative Positive Social Support Index.
The weighted mean and standard deviation used here are: mean= - 0.0004, SD= 0.8951.
How imputed: Five cases that were missing (DK or NA) on both of the input items
(V12172 and V12173) were imputed using OLS Regression estimates based on the following model:
W4 Friend/ Relative Positive Social Support Index = Sex (V103), continuous Age (V2000), and Wave 1,
Wave 2, and Wave 3 Friend/ Relative Positive Social Support Index scores (V2216, V6216 and V10907).
If a case was a Non-Respondent at Wave 2 and/ or Wave 3, the Friend/ Relative Positive
Social Support score was not available for that wave, of course, so the regression model was
run without that predictor for that case.

How index was constructed: This Chronic Parental Stress Index (V13211) was constructed from
three input variables, V12169 (Wave 4 Parental Satisfaction), V12170 (Wave 4 Bothered as Parent),
and V12171 (Wave 4 Happy Way Children Turned Out). In step 1, V12170 was reverse-coded.
Then, in step 2, V12169, V12171 and the reverse-coded version of V12170 were standardized
using the ACL Wave 1 weighted means and standard deviations for the wave 1 versions of
these 3 items (after W1 Bothered as Parent was reverse-coded).
The weighted means and standard deviations used were as follows: V12169: mean=1.6921, SD=0.80209;
V12170 Reversed: mean=2.5662, SD=0.9495; and V12171: mean=1.6409, SD=0.8519.
In step 3, the mean was calculated for these 3 standardized input variables, using the 50% rule
for missing data. That is, to calculate a mean for a specific case, the case had to have non-missing
values on at least 50% of the input items (here at least 2 of the input items).
In step 4, the overall index values obtained in step 3 were standardized, using the Wave 1
weighted means and standard deviations for the Wave 1 Chronic Parental Stress Index.
The weighted mean and standard deviation used here are: mean= -0.00104, SD= 0.7613.
How imputed: One case (V1=3335) was imputed for this index (V13211).
This Respondent had no children at ACL Waves 1 or 3 (and was a Non-Respondent at Wave 2),
so no cross-time OLS Regression imputations were possible.
The Respondent had a step-son at Wave 4, and had “parent-related” answers for V12167, V12168, and V12171.
The imputation for this index for this case is a rough averaging of his answers to
V12167, V12168, and V12171 (Code=3, before standardization).

How index was constructed: This Chronic Financial Stress Index (V13212) was constructed from
two input variables, V12577 (Wave 4 Financial Satisfaction), and V12578 (Wave 4 Difficulty
in Paying Bills). In step 1, V12578 was reverse-coded. Then, in step 2, V12577 and the reverse-coded
version of V12578 were standardized using the ACL Wave 1 weighted means and standard deviations for
the wave 1 versions of these 2 items (after W1 Difficulty in Paying Bills was reverse-coded).
The weighted means and standard deviations used were as follows: V12577: mean=2.7288, SD=1.0956;
and V12578 Reversed: mean=1.9575, SD=1.0842.
In step 3, the mean was calculated for these 2 standardized input variables, using the 50% rule
for missing data. That is, to calculate a mean for a specific case, the case had to have non-missing
values on at least 50% of the input items (here at least 1 of the input items).
In step 4, the overall index values obtained in step 3 were standardized, using the Wave 1
weighted means and standard deviations for the Wave 1 Chronic Financial Stress Index.
The weighted mean and standard deviation used here are: mean= +0.0010, SD= 0.8975.
How imputed: Eleven cases that were ACL Wave 4 Partial Interview cases and that dropped out
before reaching V12577 and V12578 (Questions Q7 and Q8) were imputed using OLS Regression
estimates based on the following model: W4 Chronic Financial Stress = Sex (V103),
continuous Age (V2000), Wave 4 continuous Income (V13113) and Wave 1,
Wave 2, and Wave 3 Chronic Financial Stress scores (V2314, V6314, V10909). If a case was
a Non-Respondent at Wave 2 or Wave 3, the Chronic Financial Stress score was not available
for that wave, of course, so the regression model was run without that predictor for that case.
Two other cases were “Don’t Know” or “Not Ascertained” on all both V12577 and
V12578. These cases were imputed for W4 Chronic Financial Stress (V13212) using the same
OLS Regression technique as the Partial Interview cases.

last interview), V12488 (R Had a Child Die since last interview), V12491 (R Had Other Close
Relative or Friend Die since last interview, and V12495 (R Had Anything Else Bad Happen that
Upset R a Lot since last interview). Cases “Don’t Know” or “Not Ascertained” for any of the
input variables (V12466, V12468, V12470, V12472, V12474, V12486, V12488, V12491 and
V12495) were assumed to be “No” on that response.
The possible range for this index is 0 to 9 events.
How imputed: Four cases that were Wave 4 Partial Interview cases that could reasonably
be imputed for specific life events items (e.g., R Never Married at Wave 4 cases were imputed
as having No Spouse Death and No Divorce since the last interview) were imputed for
those specific Life Events. On the other Life Events items, these 4 cases received the default
imputation for “Don’t Knows” and “Not Ascertained”, i.e., “No” on that item.
Six other cases that were Wave 4 Partial Interview cases that dropped out before the Life Events
questions and could NOT reasonably be imputed for any of the specific life events items
are left as .N (NA) on this index (V13213).

How index was constructed: This Physical Activity Index (V13214) was constructed from
three input variables, V12132 (Wave 4 Work in Garden or Yard), V12133 (Wave 4 Take Walks),
and V12134 (Wave 4 Engage in Active Sports or Exercise). In step 1, V12132, V12133 and V12134
were each reverse-coded. Then, in step 2, the reverse-coded version of these 3 input items were
standardized using the ACL Wave 1 weighted means and standard deviations for the wave 1 versions of
these 3 items (after each W1 item was reverse-coded).
The weighted means and standard deviations used were as follows:
V12132 Reversed: mean=2.8898, SD=1.8727; V12133 Reversed: mean=2.8997, SD=1.0721;
and V12134 Reversed: mean=2.7123, SD=1.1659.
In step 3, the mean was calculated for these 3 standardized input variables, using the 50% rule
for missing data. That is, to calculate a mean for a specific case, the case had to have non-missing
values on at least 50% of the input items (here at least 2 of the input items).
In step 4, the overall index values obtained in step 3 were standardized, using the Wave 1
weighted means and standard deviations for the Wave 1 Physical Activity Index.
The weighted mean and standard deviation used here are: mean= +0.00024, SD= 0.6830.
How imputed: One case that did not have non-missing values for 2 of the 3 input items
was imputed using an OLS Regression estimate based on the following model:
W4 Physical Activity Index = Sex (V103), continuous Age (V2000), and Wave 1,
Wave 2, and Wave 3 Physical Activity Index scores (V2203, V6203, V10903), and
V12134 (Wave 4 Engage in Active Sports or Exercise).

How imputed: For the N = 17 cases that were “Don’t Know” or “Not Ascertained”
on V12551 (“How often does R attend religious services”) simple OLS Regression
estimates were obtained from the following OLS Regression model:
Wave 4 how often attends religious services (V12551) =
Sex (V103), Age dummies (V2052-V2056), and Wave 1 (V1613), Wave 2 (V5608)
and Wave 3 (V10449) how often attends religious services.
If a case was a Non-Respondent at ACL Wave 2 and/ or Wave 3, how often attends
religious services was not available for that wave, of course, so this/ these variable(s)
were dropped for that case.
Random residuals were not included in the imputation estimates for this variable (V13217).
The Regression estimates were then rounded to the nearest whole number (1 through 6).

How index was constructed: Respondents who reached the threshold level for having had a period
of 2 weeks or more in a row in the past 12 months where they “felt sad, blue, or depressed” were then
asked if they had any of several depression-related symptoms during this period of 2 weeks or more.
To reach the threshold, a person had to (1) “feel sad, blue or depressed for 2 weeks or more in a row
in the past 12 months” (V12336 = “Yes”), and these feelings had to last “all day long” or “most of the day”
(V12337 = Codes 1 or 2), and s/he had to feel this way “every day” or “almost every day” during this period
(V12338 = Codes 1 or 2).
If a person reached this threshold, s/he was asked if s/he had any of the following “symptoms”
during the 2 weeks or more when s/he felt sad, blue, or depressed: (1) “Lost interest in most things” (V12339),
(2) “Felt tired out or low on energy all the time” (V12340), (3) Gained or lost 10 pounds or more
without trying (V12341 = Codes 1, 2 or 3 and V12342 = 10 or more pounds),
(4) “Had more trouble falling asleep than (s/he) usually does” (V12343) and have that occur
“every night” or “nearly every night” (V12344 = Codes 1 or 2), (5) Had “a lot more trouble concentrating
than usual” (V12345), (6) “Felt down on (herself/ himself), no good or worthless” (V12346),
and / or (7) “Thought a lot about death – either (her/ his) own, someone else’s, or death in general” (V12347).
The scores for this index (V13221) were coded as follows: 1 was given if a person reached
the threshold level (see above) for feeling “sad, blue or depressed”. Then, that value was increased
by 1 for each of the 7 depression-related symptoms that the Respondent reported having during this 2 week
or more period of feeling sad, blue or depressed. Thus, if a person met the threshold and said “Yes”
to having all 7 symptoms, then the person received a code of 8 for V13221. Cases coded as zero (0)
did not reach the threshold for feeling “sad, blue, or depressed” and were not asked any of the
follow-up questions about having any of the “sad, blue, or depressed symptoms”.
If a case was “Don’t Know” or “Not Ascertained” on one of the symptoms questions, then the case
was assumed to be “No” on that symptom.
No other imputations were done for this index.

How index was constructed: Respondents who scored 2 or more on V13221 (N=108)
(i.e., reached the threshold for feeling “sad, blue, or depressed” and had one or more
“sad, blue, or depressed symptoms”) were skipped out of this CIDI “loss of interest” series
of questions (V12352-V12366).
Respondents who reached the threshold level for having had a period of 2 weeks or more in a row
in the past 12 months when they “lost interest in most things like hobbies, work, or activities that
usually give them pleasure” were then asked if they had any of several depression-related symptoms
during this period of 2 weeks or more.
To reach the threshold, a person had to (1) “lose interest in most things like hobbies, work, or
activities that usually give her/him pleasure” for a period of “2 weeks or more in a row in the past 12 months”
(V12352 = “Yes”), and these feelings had to last “all day long” or “most of the day”
(V12353 = Codes 1 or 2), and s/he had to feel this way “every day” or “almost every day” during this period
(V12354 = Codes 1 or 2).
If a person reached this threshold, s/he was asked if s/he had any of the following “symptoms”
during the 2 weeks or more when s/he lost interest in most things: (1) “Felt tired out or low on energy
all the time” (V12355), (2) Gained or lost 10 pounds or more without trying
(V12356 = Codes 1, 2 or 3 and V12357 = 10 or more pounds), (3) “Had more trouble falling asleep than (s/he)
usually does” (V12358) and have that occur “every night” or “nearly every night” (V12359 = Codes 1 or 2),
(4) Had “a lot more trouble concentrating than usual” (V12360), (5) “Felt down on (herself/ himself), no good or
worthless” (V12361), and / or (6) “Thought a lot about death – either (her/ his) own, someone else’s, or death in
general” (V123627).
The scores for this index (V13222) were coded as follows: 1 was given if a person reached
the threshold level (see above) for “losing interest in most things”. Then, that value was increased
by 1 for each of the 6 depression-related symptoms that the Respondent reported having during this 2 week
or more period of losing interest in most things. Thus, if a person met the threshold and said “Yes”
to having all 6 symptoms, then the person received a code of 7 for V13222. Cases coded as zero (0)
did not reach the threshold for “losing interest in most things” and were not asked any of the
follow-up questions about having any of the “losing interest in most things symptoms”.
If a case was “Don’t Know” or “Not Ascertained” on one of the symptoms questions, then the case
was assumed to be “No” on that symptom.
No other imputations were done for this index.

How index was constructed: This index combines the codes from V13221 and V13222 into one
overall count of depression-related symptoms. This count is based on (1) reaching the severity
“threshold” for either feeling “sad, blue, or depressed” (see the write-up, above, for V13221) or for
reaching the threshold for “losing interest in most things” (see the write-up, above, for V13222),
plus (2) counting the number of depression-related symptoms the Respondent reports having for
either of these 2 CIDI depression series. The scores for V13223 are from V13221 for cases with
scores of 1 to 8 on V13221. If a case had a score of 0 (zero) on V13221, then the score for V13223
was taken from V13222.
One case (V1=1332) that reached the threshold level for feeling “sad, blue, or depressed”,
but reported having none of the sad, blue, or depressed” symptoms, was eligible to respond
to the second CIDI series about “losing interest in most things”. This Respondent answered
“No” to having 2 weeks or more when he “lost interest in most things”. Thus, this case was coded 1
on V13221 and 0 (zero) on V13222. The code for V13223 is also “1” for this case.
If a case was “Don’t Know” or “Not Ascertained” on one the symptoms questions, then the case
was assumed to be “No” on that symptom.
Cases “Don’t Know” or “Not Ascertained” on the initial questions in the “sad, blue, or depressed”
series (V12237-V12239) or on the initial questions in the “lost interest in most things” series (V12252-V12254)
are coded as “Don’t Know” or “Not Ascertained”, respectively, for V13223.

How index was constructed: This index is a dichotomous measure that indicates whether the Respondent
had a Major Depressive Episode (MDE) in the past 12 months or not.
Cases that had a score of 3 or higher on V13223 are coded as “1” (had a major depressive episode)
on V13224. Cases coded as 0, 1 or 2 on V13223 are coded as “0”, zero, (did not have a
major depressive episode) on V13224. That is, to be coded as having a major depressive episode in the
past 12 months, a Respondent had to meet the severity threshold for either “feeling sad, blue, or depressed
for 2 weeks or more in a row” (see the write-up, above, for V13221, for sad, blue, depressed “threshold”
explanation) or meet the severity threshold for “losing interest in most things for 2 weeks or more in a row”
(see the write-up, above, for V13222, for lost interest “threshold” explanation). In addition
to meeting one of the two severity thresholds, a Respondent had to report having 2 or more of the
follow-up depression-related symptoms (see V13221 and V13222 for an explanation of these symptoms).
How imputed: If a case was “Don’t Know” or “Not Ascertained” on one the symptoms questions, then the case
was assumed to be “No” on that symptom.
The other form of imputation done for this index (V13224) was done for cases that were
“Don’t Know” or “Not Ascertained on the lead-in questions (V12237-V12239 or V12252-V12254)
for the 2 CIDI series (sad, blue, or depressed and lost interest in most things). These cases were all
assumed to be “No” (Code=0) for V13224. That is, these cases were coded as having no major depressive
episode in the past 12 months, since these Respondents gave no definitive response that they
had had such an episode.

Created ACL Wave 4 Variables and Imputation Flags (V13501-V13599).
ACL Wave 4 Indices for Personality, etc., and Imputation Flags .
V13501
W4. Self-Esteem Index. 3-item
Note: V12139, V12140 and V12142 have been combined to create this Wave 4 3-item
Self-Esteem Index.
Note: This index is equivalent to V2613, V6613 and V10913.
Note: Use V13571 to identify the cases that were imputed for this index.
Range: -4.32833 to 1.152625
N = 1692
A. INAPPLICABLE
D. DON’T KNOW
N. NOT ASCERTAINED
N = 1925
N=0
N=0
How index was constructed: This (3-item) Self-Esteem Index (V13501) was constructed from
three input variables, V12139 (Wave 4 I Am Inclined to Feel I Am a Failure),
V12140 (Wave 4 I Take a Positive Attitude Toward Myself),
and V12142 (Wave 4 I Think I Am No Good At All). In step 1, V12140 was reverse-coded.
Then, in step 2, V12139, V12142 and the reverse-coded version of V12140 were standardized
using the ACL Wave 1 weighted means and standard deviations for the wave 1 versions of
these 3 items (after W1 I Take a Positive Attitude Toward Myself was reverse-coded).
The weighted means and standard deviations used were as follows: V12139: mean=3.5918, SD=0.7716;
V12140 Reversed: mean=3.4981, SD=0.6247; and V12142: mean=3.1321, SD=0.9735.
In step 3, the mean was calculated for these 3 standardized input variables, using the 50% rule
for missing data. That is, to calculate a mean for a specific case, the case had to have non-missing
values on at least 50% of the input items (here at least 2 of the input items).
In step 4, the overall index values obtained in step 3 were standardized, using the Wave 1
weighted means and standard deviations for the Wave 1 Self-Esteem Index.
The weighted mean and standard deviation used here are: mean= - 0.00004976, SD= 0.7353.
How imputed: Four cases that were missing (DK or NA) on two or more of the input items
(V12139, V12140, and/ or V12142) were imputed using OLS Regression estimates based on the following model:
W4 Self-Esteem Index = Sex (V103), continuous Age (V2000), Respondent Education dummies (V2046-V2049),
and Wave 1, Wave 2, and Wave 3 Self-Esteem Index scores (V2613, V6613 and V10913).
If a case was a Non-Respondent at Wave 2 and/ or Wave 3, the Self-Esteem index score
was not available for that wave (those waves), of course, so the regression model was run without that
predictor (those predictors) for that case.
426
V13502
W4. Pearlin Mastery Index. 2-item
Note: V12143 and V12146 have been combined to create this Wave 4 2-item
Pearlin Mastery Index.
Note: This index is equivalent to V2614, V6614 and V10914.
Note: Use V13572 to identify the cases that were imputed for this index.
Range: -3.123902 to 1.312689
N = 1692
A. INAPPLICABLE
D. DON’T KNOW
N. NOT ASCERTAINED
N = 1925
N=0
N=0
How index was constructed: This (2-item) Pearlin Mastery Index (V13502) was constructed from
two input variables, V12143 (Wave 4 There Is No Way I Can Solve The Problems I Have), and
V12146 (Wave 4 I Feel That I Am Being Pushed Around In Life).
Neither V12143 nor V12146 were reverse-coded.
In step 1, V12143 and V12146 were standardized using the ACL Wave 1 weighted means
and standard deviations for the wave 1 versions of these 2 items.
The weighted means and standard deviations used were as follows:
V12143: mean=3.3452, SD= 0.9059; and V12146: mean=2.9417, SD=0.9882.
In step 2, the mean was calculated for these 2 standardized input variables, using the 50% rule
for missing data. That is, to calculate a mean for a specific case, the case had to have non-missing
values on at least 50% of the input items (here at least 1 of the input items).
In step 3, the overall index values obtained in step 2 were standardized, using the Wave 1
weighted means and standard deviations for the Wave 1 Pearlin Mastery Index.
The weighted mean and standard deviation used here are: mean= - 0.0119, SD= 0.8249.
How imputed: Five cases that were missing (DK or NA) on both of the input items
(V12143 and V12146) were imputed using OLS Regression estimates based on the following model:
W4 Pearlin Mastery Index = Sex (V103), continuous Age (V2000), Respondent Education dummies
(V2046-V2049), and Wave 1, Wave 2, and Wave 3 Pearlin Mastery Index scores (V2614, V6614 and V10914).
If a case was a Non-Respondent at Wave 2 and/ or Wave 3, the Pearlin Mastery index score
was not available for that wave (those waves), of course, so the regression model was run without that
predictor (those predictors) for that case.

V13503
W4. Self-Efficacy Index. 6-item
Note: V12139-V12140, V12142-V12143, and V12145-V12146 have been combined to create
this Wave 4 6-item Self-Efficacy Index.
Note: This index is equivalent to V2616, V6616 and V10915.
Note: Use V13573 to identify the cases that were imputed for this index.

How index was constructed: This (6-item) Self-Efficacy Index (V13503) was constructed from
six input variables, V12139 (Wave 4 I Am Inclined to Feel I Am a Failure),
V12140 (Wave 4 I Take a Positive Attitude Toward Myself),
V12142 (Wave 4 I Think I Am No Good At All),
V12143 (Wave 4 There Is No Way I Can Solve The Problems I Have),
V12145 (Wave 4 I Can Do Just About Anything I Set My To Do), and
V12146 (Wave 4 I Feel That I Am Being Pushed Around In Life).
In step 1, V12140 and V12145 were reverse-coded.
Then, in step 2, V12139, V12142, V12143, V12146, and the reverse-coded versions
of V12140 and V12145 were standardized using the ACL Wave 1 weighted means and
standard deviations for the wave 1 versions of these 6 items (after W1 (1) I Take a Positive Attitude
Toward Myself and (2) I Can Do Just About Anything I Set My To Do were reverse-coded).
The weighted means and standard deviations used were as follows: V12139: mean=3.5918, SD=0.7716;
V12140 Reversed: mean=3.4981, SD=0.6247; V12142: mean=3.1321, SD=0.9735;
V12143: mean=3.3452, SD= 0.9059; V12145 Reversed: mean=3.4408, SD=0.7419;
and V12146: mean=2.9417, SD=0.9882.
In step 3, the mean was calculated for these 6 standardized input variables, using the 50% rule
for missing data. That is, to calculate a mean for a specific case, the case had to have non-missing
values on at least 50% of the input items (here at least 3 of the input items).
In step 4, the overall index values obtained in step 3 were standardized, using the Wave 1
weighted means and standard deviations for the Wave 1 Self-Efficacy Index.
The weighted mean and standard deviation used here are: mean= - 0.0003, SD= 0.61108.
How imputed: Six cases that were missing (DK or NA) on four or more of the input items
(V12139, V12140, V12142, V12143 V12145, and/ or V12146) were imputed using OLS Regression
estimates based on the following model: W4 Self-Efficacy Index = Sex (V103), continuous Age (V2000),
Respondent Education dummies (V2046-V2049), and Wave 1, Wave 2, and Wave 3 Self- Efficacy Index scores
(V2616, V6616 and V10915).
If a case was a Non-Respondent at Wave 2 and/ or Wave 3, the Self- Efficacy index score
was not available for that wave (those waves), of course, so the regression model was run without that
predictor (those predictors) for that case.

Appendix K
ACL Wave 4 Income Construction, Cleaning, and Imputations
Who: Done by Richard P. Mero, with input from James S. House and others.
Number of cases: approximately 325 cases were “cleaned”, partially imputed or fully imputed
on ACL4 Income (out of 1787 Wave 4 cases). Plus, about another 223 cases where the
Respondent reported a complete income bracket were imputed to a specific income value
within that income bracket.
Percent of cases changed (not including the within Income category imputations): 325 / 1787
= 18.2%
ACL4 Income was obtained through a somewhat more complex method than
it was at either ACL1 or ACL2.
First, an open-ended question (Question: Q14) was asked:
“Now, thinking about all possible sources of income you [FILL1: and your husband / and your
wife] had over the past 12 months including {FILL2: your income from a job AND Social Security
payments AND retirement AND investment income AND unemployment or worker’s compensation
AND child support or alimony AND public assistance payments AND food stamps AND other income
sources] or any other income you [FILL3: and your husband/ and your wife] received from all these
sources?
(Fill2 comes from Respondent’s answers to question Q13a, parts 1 through 9) about whether the
Respondent and his/her spouse “had any income from the [following] sources” … “during the past 12
months”.)
If the Respondent refused to give or didn’t know a dollar amount for Q14, then he/she was
asked, through a series of unfolding questions (Questions: Q14a-Q14h, Q14j-Q14k), “Would your (and
your husband’s/ wife’s) total income before taxes in the last 12 months be …” “$30,000 or more?”
If the R answered “Yes” to $30,000 or more, then the R was asked questions about higher
income levels until the dollar range for the R (and his/her spouse) was reached.
If the R answered “No” to $30,000 or more, then the R was asked questions about lower income
levels until the dollar range for the R (and his/her spouse) was reached.
477
ACL4 INCOME -- CLEANING ISSUES
At ACL4, some checking and cleaning were required to identify, clean and/or impute income
values for Q14/ Q14a-Q14h, Q14j-Q14k that were low (below $5,000). Ten of these cases were
originally coded as $ 0. Thirty-three other cases were originally coded between $1 and $4,999.
These low income values were checked on a case-by-case basis. Nine out of the 10 cases
originally coded as $ 0, were found to have some R and Spouse income. These cases were examined
on a clinical (or case-by-case) basis. Information such as Wave 4 Job Income (if any reported), Wave 4
R and Spouse Employment Status and Wave 4 Sources of Income, and overall Wave 1 to Wave 4
patterns of income, employment status and income sources, were used to determine a reasonable
estimate of the R and Spouse Wave 4 income. These nine cases, originally coded as $ 0, were all coded
to an income category that seemed appropriate to each case. The tenth case was left as $ 0.
Some (N = 14) of the “low” values (i.e., those between $1 and $4,999) proved to be monthly
income, rather than yearly income. These values were corrected on a case-by-case basis, with values
generally being multiplied by 12 to give yearly income (for V13113). Other cases (N = 10) with low
income values ($1 to $4,999) were corrected
based on information such as Wave 4 Interviewer Remarks (if any), Wave 4 R and Spouse
Employment Status and Wave 4 Sources of Income, and overall Wave 1 to Wave 4 patterns of income,
employment status and income sources, to determine a reasonable estimate of the R and Spouse Wave
4 Income. One of these 10 cases was changed to a specific income value (V13113). The other nine
cases were changed to a specific income category. Some cases (N = 9) with low income ($1 to $4,999)
values appeared to be correct as they were originally coded. These income values were not changed.
Another major form of cleaning that was done for Wave 4 R and Spouse Income was done for
cases that were missing on Wave 4 R and Spouse Income. These cases were “Don’t Know” or “Not
Ascertained” for both the specific dollar Income question (Q14) and Bracketed Income (Q14a-Q14h,
Q14j-Q14k). The cleaning work done for these cases involved checking to see if these cases had any of
three useful types of information.
First, Wave 4 Interviewer Remarks (from the ACL4 Interviewer Remarks file) were checked to
find useful information about the R and Spouse Income for a given case.
Three cases that were originally missing on Wave 4 income had useful Interviewer Remarks that
enabled us to code Wave 4 R and Spouse Income. One case was coded to a specific Income value. The
other 2 cases were coded to a specific Income category.
A second type of useful information came from cases from Multiple Respondent
Households, where both the husband and wife were ACL Respondents and both did interviews at Wave
4. If one Spouse/Respondent gave Wave 4 R & Spouse Income information, but the other
Spouse/Respondent did not, the information given by one spouse was used for both. There were 12
cases from Multiple R Households where income information from one Spouse/Respondent was used
to estimate or code the income information for the other Spouse/Respondent. One case was coded to a
specific income value (V13113), while the other 11 cases were coded to a specific income category.
The third type of useful information used to clean income for cases originally missing on Wave
4 R and Spouse Income was where the Respondent gave a specific dollar amount of income that he/she
received from his/her job in the past year (V12383). This information was especially useful when the
478
Respondent’s Job Income was a major part of the overall Wave 4 R and Spouse Income. Nine cases
that were originally missing on Wave 4 R and Spouse Income were coded to a specific income value
(V13113) based on the Respondent’s self-reported Wave 4 Job Income (V12383). Seventeen other
cases were coded to a specific income category based largely on the Respondent’s self-reported Wave 4
Job Income (V12383), but also in part on other income-related information from Wave 1 through Wave
4.
A third major form of cleaning that was done for ACL4 R and Spouse Income was for cases that
had only “partial” or incomplete income bracketing. These are cases where the Respondent answered
some of the R and Spouse Income bracket questions (Q14a-Q14h, Q14j-Q14k), but not all of them. As
a result, it was not possible to determine the Respondent’s specific Wave 4 R and Spouse Income
category. For example, the Respondent’s answers to the bracket income questions (Q14a-Q14h, Q14jQ14k) might indicate only that his/her R and Spouse Income was less than $10,000
(income categories 1 and 2), or was between $15,000 and $29,999 (income categories 4, 5 and 6), or
was $30,000 or more (income categories 7 through 11). There were 77 cases that originally had only
“partial” income bracketing.
Clinical (case-by-case) checks were made for each of these 77 cases. Six of these cases were
coded to a specific income value. These 6 cases had useful information, such as (a) helpful Interviewer
Remarks, (b) Multiple R Households where one Wave 4 Spouse/Respondent gave specific Wave 4 R
and Spouse Income information (while the other Spouse/Respondent only gave a partial bracket), or (c)
the Respondent reported his/her specific Wave 4 Job Income (V12383).
The other 71 cases with only “partial” income brackets were coded into a specific R and Spouse
Income category. These cases were coded into specific income categories that were consistent with the
“partial” bracket information that the Respondent reported, and based on Wave 4 R and Spouse
Employment Status and Wave 4 Sources of Income, and overall Wave 1 to Wave 4 patterns of income,
employment status and income sources. Sometimes the “partial” income brackets were close to
complete, i.e., were within 2 or 3 possible income categories (for example, “less than $10,000”
[categories 1 and 2] or “between $15,000 and $29,999” [categories 4, 5 or 6], or “$80,000 or more”
[categories 10 and 11]. Fifteen cases were originally within 2 income categories. Twenty-four cases
were within 3 income categories. And the remainder (N=32 cases) were within 5 income categories, all
“$30,000 or more.”
The remaining type of cleaning that was done for ACL4 R and Spouse Income was done as a
by-product of cleaning being done for other ACL4 variables. Nine or so Wave 4 R and Spouse Income
changes were made based on information that was found during the cleaning of the ACL4 Employment
variables (Section J) or the Wave 4 Income Sources and Assets variables (Section Q). Seven of these
cases were coded to a specific income value, while 2 cases were coded to a specific income category.

ACL4 INCOME --- IMPUTATION ISSUES AND METHOD
How done:
The Income Imputations for ACL4 Income were done in 3 steps.
In the first step of imputations for ACL4 Income, the “IVE-ware: Imputation and Variance
Estimation Software” was used. (IVE-ware: Imputation and Variance Estimation Software.
“Installation Instructions and User Guide. Draft”. Raghunathan, T.E., Solenberger, P.W., and Van
Hoewyk, J., Survey Methodology Program, Survey Research Center, University of Michigan, July 5,
2000.
The IVE-ware Imputation software was used in steps 1 and 3.
Step 1: For cases that did not have an Income bracket or range, the IVE-ware Imputation
software was used to help place these cases into one of the 11 income brackets for Wave 4 R
and Spouse Income. There were 165 cases that were still missing (“Don’t Know” or “Not
Ascertained”) on Wave 4 R and Spouse Income, after the income cleaning work was completed.
The model used to estimate the Wave 4 R and Spouse Income value for these 165 cases is
shown below.
Step 1: Statistical Model used to impute Wave 4 R and Spouse Income.
The variable being estimated (dependent variable) is the natural logarithm of Wave 4 R and
Spouse Income (V13113). Only cases that were Wave 4 Respondents (N=1787) were included in the
model estimates.
The 31 variables used as predictors for the IVE-wave Imputation model in Step 1 were:

modified so codes (7)“Retired”, (8) “Disabled”,
(9)“Unemployed”, and (10) “Keeps House”
were collapsed into an “Unemployed category”.

(9) “Unemployed”, and (10) “Keeps House”
were collapsed into an “Unemployed category”.
(17)
ACL4 12-Category Job Classification variable (V13320)
modified so codes (7)“Retired”, (8) “Disabled”,
(9) “Unemployed”, and (10) “Keeps House”
were collapsed into an “Unemployed category”,
and so codes (11) “R Working, NA Job”
and (12) “R Temporarily Laid Off, On Sick or Maternity Leave,
NA on Job” were collapsed into a “Working but NA on Job”
Category.

481
Step 2.
Once the income estimates were obtained for Wave 4 R and Spouse Income for the 165 cases
missing on Wave 4 R and Spouse Income, a check was done to assess the reasonability of the estimates
for each of these 165 cases.
A clinically determined “Best Guess” was made about what an appropriate income category
might be for each case. These ‘best guess” Income categories had been used to help evaluate the
adequacy of the 4 income estimation models we used to try to estimate Wave 4 R and Spouse Income.
The 2 logged income models did better than the 2 continuous (unlogged) income models. The better of
the 2 logged models is shown in Step 1, above.
The income estimates obtained in the Step 1 Model were compared with the “best guess”
income categories to find income estimates that differed by 3 or more income categories from the “best
guess” categories. Roughly, in dollar terms, that means that cases were identified that were $15,000 or
more away from the “best guess” estimate at the low end of the income scale, or were $60,000 or more
away from the “best guess” estimates at the high end of the income scale. About 15% of the 165 cases
(25 cases) were 3 or more categories away from the “best guess” income categories.
A closer examination was made for these 25 cases to see why the IVE-ware estimates (above
model) were so far off. Typically, the general model seemed to break down for these cases because of
anomalies that existed for each case. For example, these cases often had missing data on some of the
important predictors in the general model. Cases might be missing on all Wave 4 Sources of Income
and these income sources were being estimated or imputed by the IVE-ware program along with the
Wave 4 Income value. Similarly, cases where the R was a non-respondent at Wave 2 and/or Wave 3
were missing on Wave 2 and/or Wave 3 R and Spouse Income, which are important predictors of Wave
4 R and Spouse Income. The IVE-ware program also estimated/imputed the Wave 2 and Wave 3
Income values for these cases, along with the Wave 4 Income value.
The second common reason why the general model did a poor job of estimating income for
some of these cases was because some cases had a very complicated or unusual income pattern over
time, with multiple rises or drops in income. The general model, without the necessary interaction
terms, did not fit these cases very well.
Other information that was not part of the general model was used to replace or augment the
missing data for the 25 cases, which allowed greater reliability and accuracy for the “best guess”
Income estimates for these cases. Other information, such as Sources
of Income at previous waves, as well as more detailed looks at the R and Spouse Employment
histories, were used in the “best guess” Income estimates. These detailed (or potentially redundant)
pieces of information could not easily be added to the general model. The “best guess” estimates also
permitted case-by-case constructions which helped to make sense of the up-and-down income patterns
that existed for some of these cases.
482
After the close case-by-case reexamination of these 25 cases, each case was assigned to what we
determined to be an appropriate Income category.
The other 140 cases missing on Wave 4 R and Spouse Income were coded into the specific
Income category that had been estimated from Step 1, using the IVE-ware program and the prediction
model shown above.
Step 3.
In the third step of the imputations for Wave 4 R and Spouse Income, the IVE-ware Imputation
software was again used. At this stage, dollar values were imputed for each case in each of the 11
income brackets. This imputation strategy was done for a total of 509 cases that had specific income
category codes, but did not have a specific dollar income value (V13113).
The 509 cases imputed to specific income values (V13113) in this step all had specific income
categories. The income categories for these cases were obtained in the following 3 ways. (These cases
can be identified by codes 1 and 2 of the Wave 4 Income Imputation Flag variable (V13193)).
(1) The 223 cases that were missing on specific income (Question Q14) but had a Respondentreported bracket (“Complete Bracket”) for the unfolding Income Brackets (Questions: Q14aQ14h, Q14j-Q14k).
(2) The 121 cases that were assigned to specific income categories during the income cleaning
work, described above.
(3) The 165 cases that had been imputed to an Income category in Steps 1 and 2
of the
imputation process, described above.
Statistical Model used for Step 3 R and Spouse Income imputations.
The variable being estimated (dependent variable) is the natural logarithm of Wave 4 R
and Spouse Income (V13113).
Only cases that were Wave 4 Respondents (N=1787) were included in the model estimates.
The 31 variables used as predictors for the IVE-wave Imputation model in Step 3 are the
same as in Model 1 (Step 1), above. However, in this set of calculations, each of the 509 cases for
which Wave 4 R and Spouse Income estimates were being obtained were constrained to fall within the
lower and upper bounds of the income category within which each case was coded.
Once the estimate of the natural logarithm of Wave 4 R and Spouse Income was estimated for each of
the 509 cases, these values were converted (exponentiated) back to actual dollar values and then
rounded to the nearest whole dollar. The rounded dollar values for these 509 cases were then merged
back in with the income values for the Wave 4 cases which were not imputed.
