Description
  • Abstract

    The 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 kinds of health services people receive. There are five types of records in the 1982 core survey, each in a separate data file. The variables in the Household File (Part 1) in this collection include type of living quarters, size of family, region, condition list assigned, and type of PSU. The Person File (Part 2) variables include sex, age, race, marital status, veteran status, education, income, industry and occupation codes, and limits on activity. The Condition File (Part 3), Doctor Visit File (Part 4), and Hospital Episode File (Part 5) contain information on each reported condition, two-week doctor visit, or hospitalization (twelve-month recall), respectively. A sixth and seventh file have been provided. The Health Insurance Supplement File (Part 6) contains questions about health insurance plans pertaining to the type of plan, including private, Medicare, Medicaid, military and other plans, and coverage or reasons for lack of coverage are provided. The Preventive Care Supplement File (Part 7) contains variables that chronicle when routine tests, physicals, and preventative examinations have last been performed.
