Derived Variable Note

SF-12 Mental Component Summary (MCS). This measure converts valid answers to the origin questions into a single mental functioning score, resulting in a continuous scale with a range of 0 (low functioning) to 100 (high functioning). The information was collected face-to-face in Wave 1 and then moved to the self-completion interview. For complete details on scoring methods see Ware, J.E., Kosinski, M., Turner-Bowker, D.M. and Gandek, B. (2001), How to Score Version 2 of the SF-12® Health Survey (With a Supplement Documenting Version 1), Lincoln, RI, Quality Metric Incorporated.
