Summary
This yearly data collection attempts to describe the social, demographic, and economic aspects of illness, disability, and medical services. Since the focus of the interview data is on the impact health matters have on the individual rather than on medical criteria, the concepts of morbidity, disability, and the use of services differ from those used in medical and scientific studies. Data cover the occurrence and severity of illness and disability, health care service use, patient visits to doctors or hospitals and operations, limitations on activities due to chronic or acute conditions, frequency of medical or dental visits, current health status, insurance coverage, and demographic characteristics of respondents such as age, sex, race, household relationship, employment status, family income, education level, marital status, and veteran status
