Codes and Frequencies
For children under age 18 who received Special Education or Early Intervention Services (LASPED), LASPEDEM indicates if the child received these services due to an emotional or behavioral problem.
The Field Representative's Manual for 2001 forward defined Special Education and Early Intervention Services as follows:
The term "emotional or behavioral problem" was respondent-defined. The Field Representative's Manual for 2001 forward informed interviewers that "problem is defined as the respondent's perception of a chronic, perhaps permanent, departure from physical, mental or emotional well being." Short-term disabilities (such as pregnancy or injuries with full recovery expected) were not to count as "problems." These details were not, however, routinely shared with respondents.
