If category is not applicable, then field should be coded 88. Do not leave blank.

*If there is uncertainty regarding residence, treat it as a self-report variable. If residence is not clear, a reliable respondent (when possible the person with TBI) should be asked, eg., "Where were you [the person with TBI] living at the time of the injury?". If the response is ambiguous (as may happen, eg., if the person is transient) use probes in order to adequately understand the respondent's belief regarding residence, then code that. Do not probe to obtain additional objective information about the living situation and then (the data collector) use that information in determining the correct code. When residence is at all ambiguous, treat it as a self-report variable.
Patient lived at home at time of injury, and lived in a transitional living facility after rehabilitation.
