Comparability

This variable is largely comparable across available years.

For 2002, 2008, and 2012, this variable is created based on responses to two separate questions. First, respondents were asked whether they had taken music lessons, either voice or training or playing an instrument, in the last year. Second, they were asked whether they had taken music appreciation lessons in the last year.

For 2013 and 2015, respondents were asked a single question about whether they had taken music or music appreciation lessons in the last year. This was asked of all supplement respondents.
