Codes and Frequencies
For sample children age 3 to 17 years who ever had an emotional or behavioral problem that lasted 3 months or more, EMOAGETP refers to how old the child was when the condition was first noticed and reports whether the number of units given in EMOAGENO is in months or years. Respondents could also report "since birth." Thus, this variable indicates only the type time period (month or year) for the units reported, and has to be used in conjunction with EMOAGENO, which indicates the number of units.
For a full list of variables related to the emotional problems in children, see EMOPEV.
