Supplementary notes

Six questions ask how often during the past 30 days a respondent experienced certain symptoms of psychological distress: feeling so sad that nothing could cheer you up, nervous, restless or fidgety, hopeless, worthless, that everything was an effort. The response codes (0-4) of the six items were summed to yield a scale with a 0-24 range. A value of 13 or more for this scale is used here to define serious psychological distress.
