Eligibility status, round record


ELIGRD indicates a person's eligibility status for the round. All key, in scope persons of a sampled responding unit are eligible for data colleciton. The only non-key persons eligible for data collection are those who are living in a responding unit with at least one key, in scope person. At the point where this person is no longer living with a key, in scope person, they are no longer considered eligible. The only out-of-scope persons who are considered eligible are those who are living with a key, in scope person, and, again, only for the period that they are living with this person. Only members of the military can meet this description. For more information on keyness, see the peson-level variable KEYNESS, and for more information on in scope status, see the variable INSCOPRD.
