  • Abstract

    The purpose of the National 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 kinds of health services people receive. The 1994 National Health Interview Survey on Disability (NHIS-D), Phase I, was administered at the same time as the NHIS 1994 core, NATIONAL HEALTH INTERVIEW SURVEY, 1994 (ICPSR 6724). This questionnaire collected basic data on disability and was used as a screening device to determine eligibility for the second phase of the survey. This supplement contains four fields: record type, year, person ID, and outcome code for adult and child.
