Data inconsistency

% Done:



I am currently trying to run some analysis using the SDQ total difficulties score (ypsdqtd_dv). According to the strengths and difficulties scoring manual ( the scores should be 0-40. Wave 3 and 5 are in line with this however the scores for wave 7 are from 25-75. Please could you advise why this might be?

Dear Suzi,

There was a data error in these variables in data released in November 2017 (see #890). This has been corrected in the most recent release, so please download the most up to date version of the data.

Best wishes,
