Variable Description

ACM Expense Item

The type of the ongoing expense the Client is financially responsible for – the table consists of one row per expense type for each Client. Note: The Mission collects information about a wide range of potential expenses. While the data input in to this table is by use of drop down boxes for expense items, there are also a lot of values in this field that have been manually entered. NULL values in this field do not mean that the row is invalid, rather that the value in the raw data was not one collected on the data form – this could include names of different debt collection agencies, mobile shops, etc., where inclusion of this data in the clean environment would go against the privacy and confidentiality afforded to entities within the IDI.

This variable is not part of a dataset.
