Description

Hi,

I have a question about variables d_depenth1-6, how did you come up with those questions?
Other mental well-being/distress questions come from a known measure such as GHQ, SF12 MCS, WEMWBS, etc or ask specifically about whether the person was diagnosed with anxiety/depression. However, these questions appear to be more along the GHQ lines, but without the GHQ-style references to back it up as a valid and useful measure.

Additionally, I found pretty much the same questions in WERS 2011:

I really like this questions, but I would be great to give the child a name and reference its parents.

Cheers,

Christoph (UoY)
