Introduction to the Data Sets

We define children and youth loosely. By children, we mean respondents who were elementary school students. By youth, we mean respondents who were high school or university students.

The studies were not meant to be longitudinal, so a question might have minor variations in wording when it was used in different studies. Also, not every survey used the same sets of variables. We provide a table which contains labels of the variables used in all the studies and the questions corresponding to them to facilitate researchers’ model building or meta-analysis.
