Notes: This variable is derived from '10% coded' variables. It should not be used except with extreme caution, as totals will differ from those resulting from 100% coded variables.
This variable was applied during the 10% edit stage (which edits the 100% 'hard to code' items) if HDHEAD9 was found to be inconsistent with other data. In some cases the head of household may be different between HDHEAD9 and HDHEADT9.
