* Files in the 700 series contain data from telephone interviews held with respondents, while files in the 600 series contain data from telephone interviews held with proxies. In wave C however, the same questionnaire was used for both respondent and proxy; data was stored in the 600 series.

** Not yet documented

*** Under construction

IM In 2004, three years after wave E an interim measurement was carried out on the first cohort, see the specific topics for more details. More information will follow.
