Coding of Arts Variables (Wave 2 & 5)
For variables b_arts1freq, b_art2freq and e_arts1freq, e_arts2freq, does "-8" refer to all those who replied "none of these" (96) to questions arts1a; arts1b; arts2a and arts2b?
I want to know what score for the frequency variables represents those individuals who replied "none of these" to any of the arts-related questions.

- Status changed from New to Feedback
- % Done changed from 0 to 80
- Private changed from Yes to No
The way to understand -8 cases is to look at the questionnaire and see who is asked the question. Those who are not asked the question are coded as -8 (and -7 if the question was not included in the proxy questionnaire). Who is eligible for the question is described in the field "Universe" - located below the question.
In case of ars1freq, the universe is:
If (GRIDVARIABLES.ModeType = 1) // Mode is face-to-face
And If (ARTS1A = 1 Thru 7 | ARTS1B = 9 Thru 15) // If have done any arts activities
So, only those who were interviewed in face-to-face mode and reported in previous questions that they had participated in any of the arts activities were asked about this question.
Hope this helps.
