This codebook provides detailed descriptions of all data subfiles and variables in the MHSS Household survey. It also presents information on cases that are known anomalies. The codebook should be used in conjunction with the Community/Provider Questionnaires (DRU-2018/3) and the Overview and User's Guide (DRU-2018/1) for the MHSS. The questionnaires provide the English translations of the questions asked. The Overview and User's Guide gives a detailed description of the Community/Provider sample, and addresses issues about linking community data to household data. For more information on the MHSS, please see the FLS Home Page.

This report is part of the RAND draft series. The unrestricted draft was a product of RAND 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.
