How are the variables named?

We name variables in the dataset using descriptive names in camel case. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/x2dbyw72(v=vs.71).aspx

Naming variables descriptively helps to make analysis code more readable than naming variables by their question number. Question numbering is also less practical in a panel study, where a particular variable may change its position across waves.
