SHS 2003 List of Variables
Introduction
This document is the most sensible starting point to analysing the SHS data, as it
categorises all the variables stored on the dataset to two levels, and it is therefore
easier to see the coverage of questions asked at this summary level, rather than
ploughing straight into the documentation of the questionnaires and self-completion
booklets.

Once you have found the appropriate variables that you want to analyse, you then
need to look at the other documentation to see in more detail exactly how the
question was asked in the study, or how a derived variable has been defined.

The source of each variable is indicated in the final column of each table of variables
with abbreviations as follows:

HHold            Household CAPI Questionnaire
Indiv            Individual CAPI Questionnaire
Nurse            Nurse CAPI Questionnaire
SC …             Self-Completion Booklet: SC 8-12, SC 13-15, SC YP, SC AD, SC P4-12 or
                 where a question appears in more than one booklet the range is
                 widened (eg SC8-15, SC 16+)
Lab              Results from laboratory, ie from saliva or serum testing
ARF              Address Record Form completed for each issued address
NRF              Nurse Record Form completed for each household where at least one
                 person had agreed to a nurse interview
Derived          A variable derived from other variables, and detailed in the Derived
                 Variable Specification document
