Description

AGE is a public use version of the respondent's age at the time of the survey. In most samples, AGE is top-coded at 75 and bottom-coded at 23, 27, or 35.

For SESTAT samples in the years 1993 to 1999, AGE is a recode using the variable BIRYR, which is the respondent's birth year, given in 5-year intervals. The result is that AGE is also given in 5-year intervals, because the recode subtracts the value in BIRYR from the survey year.

Comparability

This variable's top and bottom codes vary by sample. Users are advised to see the codes page to appropriately use AGE in analyses.
