Family and school issue data were entered for F3 in CO as post2healthcodes2-08.xlsx. Up to three family codes and three school codes could be entered per child. However, many of these codes are common to both twins, rather than child-specific. Numerical codes for these categories: Allergies, Emotional or Behavioral, Medical or Physical, Family issues, Prenatal or Birth Conditions, and School Issues are listed in this Word document: Health codes.
Equivalent coded data has not been located for Australia. I examined tester comments entered by Rosemary to see if similar material was noted, but notes did not seem to cover non-test-session material.
