Description
  • Abstract

    The basic 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. Person variables include sex, age, race, marital status, veteran status, education, income, industry and occupation codes, limits on activity, number and duration of hospital stays, and doctor visits. The Medical Device Implant Questionnaire has two data files. The first file (Person File) is derived from the 1988 NHIS core questionnaire and includes at least one Medical Device Implant record for each of the 122,310 persons in the 1988 NHIS sample whether or not an implant was recorded for them. The second file (Medical Device File) contains records for the persons with one or more implants, and it features a comprehensive set of questions on the use of six types of medical device implants. The six medical implant categories each contain approximately 155 variables and cover Artificial Joints (N=824 cases), Fixation Devices (bone implants, N=2,436 cases), Artificial Heart Valves (N=151 cases), Intraocular Lens (lens implant, N=1,941), Pacemakers (N=244), and Other Devices (including ear vent tubes, silicone implants, dental implants, shunts or catheters, and artificial blood vessels, N=2,004).

Temporal Coverage
  • Collection date: 1988
Geographic Coverage
  • United States
Sampled Universe
Civilian, noninstitutionalized population of the 50 states and the District of Columbia.
Sampling
Multistage probability sample from 1,924 geographically defined Primary Sampling Units (PSUs).
Collection Mode
  • Per agreement with NCHS, ICPSR distributes the data file(s) and technical documentation in this collection in their original form as prepared by NCHS. The data contain ampersands (&), dashes (-), and blank codes. The supplements to the National Health Interview Surveys may be used independently since they incorporate person file data. The National Center for Health Statistics also refers to these supplements as 'current health topics.'
