CONFUSEYR reports responses to the question, "Compared with a year ago, [do you get confused] more often, less often, or about the same?" This question was the second part of a two part question, in which interviewers first asked, "People find that they sometimes get confused as they get older. In the past year, about how often did you get confused - frequently, sometimes, rarely, or never?"

If the respondent provided an answer other than those listed on the survey text, then the interviewer recorded the verbatim response.


This variable has no comparability issues.
