ADMWLM
Did work less carefully because of emotional problems: past 4 weeks

Description

[ PRELIMINARY VARIABLE: Variable description may change once we confirm the universe and assess the comparability of this variable over time. ]

For adults aged 18 and older, ADMWLM indicates how much of the time in the last four weeks the respondent did work or other activities less carefully than usual as a result of any emotional problems, such as feeling depressed or anxious. Beginning in 2017, MEPS reversed the order of the response categories in the original variable. IPUMS MEPS staff recoded this variable so that response categories are consistent across all years. This may require users to recode certain years of data to calculate the physical component summary (PCS) and mental component summary (MCS) scores.

ADMWLM is one of a set of variables comprising the Veteran's RAND 12-item scale measuring self-rated health, collected on the Adult Self-Administered Questionnaire (SAQ). For related variables and more information, please see ADDAYA.
