sf1 and scsf1 understanding
Hi, could you please explain the difference between sf1 and scsf1. My understandng is that sf1 was asked face to face, wheras scsf1 was a self assessed form respondents had to complete. However for waves 6 and 7, the sf1 variable largely reports respondents answers as inapplicable (-8). Could you please explain this?

to reconstruct the inapplicable codes in specific waves and variables you need to check the questionnaires, particularly the universe information provided therein. In Wave 6 you can see the following info for sf1:
If (GRIDVARIABLES.modetype = 1) // Mode is face-to-face
And If (IProxy = 1) // Able to do a proxy interview for respondent
The question is inapplicable to everyone to whom this condition does not apply. I trust this will also be the case in Wave 7.
Hope this helps,
