NoteTwo age variables are computed. The age at date of interview is used for most purposes internal to a wave, e.g. computation of h/hold characteristics. The age at 1.12.2007 is intended to ensure consistency in cross wave comparison. 1st December is also the criterion date for determining whether those close to 16 should be interviewed. Includes imputed data, for individual level derived variables, the imputation flag variable QAGEI takes the value 1 if the variable was imputed, and 0 or -8 otherwise. See Vol. A.
