Appendix A: HOME-SF Scales (NLSY79 Child)

The HOME-SF is divided into four parts: one for children under age three; a second for children between the ages of three and five; a third for children ages six through nine; and starting with the 1988 survey round, a fourth version for children ten and over.  The number of individual items varies according to the age of the child. Prior to constructing an overall score and the two subscores for the HOME-SF, all of the individual items are translated into dichotomous zero-one variables and then appropriately summed.
