# Use adl_score_5_fun() to create the variable ADL_score_5 across CCHS 
# cycles adl_score_5_fun() is specified in variable_details.csv along with 
# the CCHS variables and cycles included.

# To transform ADL_score_5, use rec_with_table() for each CCHS cycle
# and specify ADL_score_5, along with the various ADL variables.
# Then by using merge_rec_data() you can combine ADL_der across cycles.
