This Codebook provides detailed descriptions of all variables and their locations in the IFLS-HH data files. It also presents information on cases that are known anomalies. The Codebook should be used in conjunction with the Household Questionnaires (DRU-1195/2) and the User's Guide (DRU-1195/6) for the IFLS. The Household Questionnaires provide the English translations of the questions asked. The User's Guide discusses the file structure of the IFLS database (both household and community-facility data) and addresses issues about identifying individuals of interest and linking the various subfile types to produce analytic files.
This report is part of the RAND Corporation draft series. The unrestricted draft was a product of the RAND Corporation from 1993 to 2003 that represented preliminary or prepublication versions of other more formal RAND products for distribution to appropriate external audiences. The draft could be considered similar to an academic discussion paper. Although unrestricted drafts had been approved for circulation, they were not usually formally edited or peer reviewed.
