Codes and Frequencies
WBLADDER indicates how respondents personally feel about where they stand at present in regards to the best/worst possible life for them. On a 10-point scale, respondents are asked to imagine a ladder with steps numbered from zero at the bottom to ten at the top. The top of the ladder (step 10) represents the best possible life for them and the bottom of the ladder represents the worst possible life (step 0).
These data were collected as part of the Well-being Module of the ATUS interview. Research using this variable without activity-level quality of life data should apply WBWT as the weight in analyses; research using this variable in conjunction with activity-level quality of life data should use AWBWT for analyses.
