5) Created residence variables – Round 2 through Round 10
A small change in the program recoded invalid skips (-3) values in rounds 2 through 10 to valid skips (-4); this reflects the original program done in round 1. A small change specific to the round 5 data updated this variable to reflect refusals (-1) and don't know answers (-2) in YHHI-3500 to invalid skips (-3). The variables and number of affected respondents are below:

Round 2: CV_TTL_RESIDENCES – 951
Round 3: CV_TTL_RESIDENCES – 909
Round 4: CV_TTL_RESIDENCES – 896
Round 5: CV_TTL_RESIDENCES – 896
Round 6: CV_TTL_RESIDENCES – 888
Round 7: CV_TTL_RESIDENCES – 847
Round 8: CV_TTL_RESIDENCES – 834
Round 9: CV_TTL_RESIDENCES – 808
Round 10: CV_TTL_RESIDENCES – 838

6) Created MSA variable – Round 10 40 respondents were changed from a valid skip (-4) to a code of out of the country (5) in the round 10 CV_MSA variable.

7) Created income variables – Round 8 through Round 10
A small change in the income and poverty program was required to capture a questionnaire change beginning in round 8. The variables and number of affected respondents are below:

Round 8:
CV_HH_POV_RATIO – 473
CV_INCOME_FAMILY – 473

Round 9:
CV_HH_POV_RATIO – 446
CV_INCOME_FAMILY – 444

Round 10:
CV_HH_POV_RATIO – 413
CV_INCOME_FAMILY – 414

8) The CVC_RND_2005 variable was inadvertently omitted from the round 9 data release but is available by downloading CVC_RND_2005.xls. This variable indicates the respondent's most recent interview round regardless of their round 9 interview status. It should be used in conjunction with the CVC_* variables to determine which round from which the information was collected.

9) The military pay variables for rounds 8 and 9 were inadvertently omitted from the latest NLSY97 release but are available by downloading nlsy97r8-9milpay.zip. These variables will be included in the next full release of NLSY97 data.

10) Omitted from the round 4 Codebook Supplement is the documentation of the program creating the Round 4 ESR and collapsed ESR variables (CV_ESR, R55289.00 and CV_ESR_COLLAPSED, R55290.00). This text-file is available by downloading esr.sas.

11) Additional round 1 through round 6 PIAT variables that detail the test answers and conditions will be included in the next full release of NLSY97 data.
