|Usage Note:||Please note an addition of two questions: Q122a and Q122b. These two have replaced our previous Age variable (q122), starting in October of this year (JOB=66 onward). Q122a contains the numeric answer for age given by a respondent, while Q122b codes it into the same buckets we used in Q122, allowing for backwards compatibility as well as more granular detail.
