New Transition added to the 2012 and 2013 Well-being modules:
[CANTRIL_INT] Thank you. We?re going to switch focus now. The next two questions ask you to think about your life in general, not just in terms of the specific activities we just talked about. And, rather than using a 6-point scale to represent how you feel, we?ll be using a 10-point scale. To begin,New Questions added to the 2012 and 2013 Well-being modules:
8. [CANTRIL] Please imagine a ladder with steps numbered from zero at the bottom to ten at the top. The top of the ladder represents the best possible life for you and the bottom of the ladder represents the worst possible life for you.
If the top step is 10 and the bottom step is 0, on which step of the ladder do you feel you personally stand at the present time?
9. [TYPICAL] Thinking about yesterday as a whole, how would you say that your feelings, both good and bad, compared to a typical [fill day of the week]? Were they better than a typical [fill day of the week], the same as a typical [fill day of the week], or worse than a typical [fill day of the week]?
[The new introduction (CANTRIL_INT) appeared directly after the affect questions, and CANTRIL and TYPICAL became the new questions #8 and #9. The old question #8 and all subsequent questions in the module were bumped back. For example, the old question #8, PAIN ITEM #1, became question #10 in the 2012 and 2013 modules.]
