Summary
In 1987, the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) questionnaire included a special section that queried female respondents aged 20 through 54 about adoption. Their responses to the supplement are recorded in this dataset, along with other information about them derived from the core 1987 questionnaire. The special section on adoption asked if any children had ever been adopted, the number that were adopted, and whether these children currently lived in the household. Additional questions in the supplement inquired about the two most recent adoptions: how the adoptions were arranged, the adoptive mother's relationship to the adopted children before adoption, when and how old the adopted children were when they began living with the adoptive mother, the date of birth of the adopted children, and whether the adopted children were born in the United States. Variables from the core questionnaire include height, weight, age, race, Hispanic origin, type of living quarters, region and metropolitan status of residence, marital status, veteran status, education, family income, health status, industry, occupation, activity limitation status, medical conditions, restricted activity days in the past two weeks, bed days in the past two weeks and past 12 months, time interval since the last doctor visit, and the number of doctor visits and short-stay hospital episodes in the past two months....
