Round 1 and Round 2 data.
Comment: This variable recorded numerical data derived from text entries made by students. The students were writing about their most important or dominant hoped-for Future Self. The survey questions brought the students to a considered choice at this point and most responded with clearly defined statements that fitted several categories. The numerical scores were derived from the following scale which differered slightly from the expectations written earlier in the questionnaire:
0 = No hopes written or no response.
1 = General happiness - comfort, security and acceptance.
2 = Personal development goals - competence, success and fame.
3 = Health-related goals - longevity.
4 = Social and family goals - including home ownership and love.
5 = Vocational or career goals - financial security.
6 ... was reserved for students who wrote flippant, inappropriate and sometimes funny comments - extras included offensive comments.
