Bookmarked variables | Save
Derived Variable NoteThis measure converts valid answers to 12 questions of the General Health Questionnaire (GHQ) to a single scale by recoding 1 and 2 values on individual variables to 0, and 3 and 4 values to 1, and then summing, giving a scale running from 0 (the least distressed) to 12 (the most distressed). See Cox, B.D et al, The Health and Lifestyle Survey. (London: Health Promotion Research Trust, 1987). Note that this was collected in the face-to-face interview in Wave 1 and was then shifted to the self-completion questionnaire.
