Codes and Frequencies
ALONE_ALT indicates that the respondent was alone and no other people were reported as present. People who may not be present during the activity include the spouse/partner (SPPART), child (CHILD, including INFANT), other household adult (HHADULT), co-worker (COWORK), and other person (OTHERP). Users should note that HHADULT is not available in 1998.
In comparison to ALONE_ALT, ALONE is sometimes coded as 1 even if other people are present.
ALONE_ALT is only available if you select a hierarchical extract. If you request a hierarchical extract and plan to construct time use variables in your statistics package, this variable may be useful to you. Alternatively, you may use ALONE_ALT to construct a time use variable as part of this system.
