Description
  • Abstract

    The basic purpose of the Health Interview Survey (HIS) 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 1978 Smoking Supplement provides variables from the core Person File (see HEALTH INTERVIEW SURVEY, 1978 [ICPSR 8044])including sex, age, race, marital status, veteran status, education, income, industry and occupation codes, and limits on activity. The variables unique to this supplement include information on smoking status of respondents including whether they never smoked, occasionally smoked, were former smokers, or were present smokers. Data are also supplied on number of cigarettes smoked, age when started smoking, brands smoked, number of attempts to quit smoking, and tar and nicotine levels of brands smoked.
  • Methods

    These data contain multiple weight variables for each part. Users should refer to the User Guide for further information regarding the weights and their derivation. Additionally, users may need to weight the data prior to analysis.
  • Methods

    ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection: Created online analysis version with question text..
