Summary
The basic purpose of the Health Interview Survey (NHIS) 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 Part 1 of this data collection include type of living quarters, size of family, region, and type of sampling area. In Part 2, the Person file, variables include sex, age, race, marital status, veteran status, and education. The Condition, Doctor Visit, and Hospital Episodes files (Parts 3-5) contain information on each reported acute or chronic condition, doctor visit, or hospitalization, respectively. Parts 6-7 comprise the Supplement on Aging (SOA), and contain data on a subset of the NHIS population, those aged 55 and over. These files contain the same Person and Condition variables as Parts 2-3 but are supplemented by questions pertaining specifically to the subpopulation of older respondents. These additional variables cover family relationships and support, community and social support, occupation and retirement, nursing home stays, help with care, health opinions, and other health-related and social information about middle-aged and older people. Part 8, Health Insurance Supplement, contains information on the type of health insurance held by each respondent from the Person file.... Cf.: http://dx.doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR08659
