Summary
The basic purpose of the Health Interview Survey is to obtain information about the amount and distribution of illness, its effects in terms of disability and chronic impairments, and the kind of health services people receive. Household variables in this data collection include type of living quarters, size of family, region, condition list assigned, and type of PSU. Person variables include sex, age, race, marital status, veteran status, education, income, industry and occupation codes, and limits on activity. Also in the Person file are the Home Care Supplement variables which were used to define the need for personal (individual) home care as a result of a chronic health condition, as well as the use of eyeglasses and contact lenses and hearing aids. The Condition, Doctor Visit, and Hospital files contain information on each reported condition, two-week doctor visit, or hospitalization (twelve-month recall), respectively. This survey includes three supplements. A Smoking Supplement contains variables on smoking status, number of cigarettes smoked, length of time smoked, tar and nicotine levels, and attempts to quit smoking. The Residential Mobility Supplement asks questions concerning where the respondent lives, length of time at an address, number of moves, number of miles moved, and with whom the respondent lives. The latest supplement on Health Insurance contains questions about health insurance plans. The type of plan, including private, Medicare, Medicaid, military and other plans, and coverage or reasons for lack of coverage are provided.... Cf.: http://dx.doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR08223
