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. The purpose of this supplement was to monitor the public's knowledge about Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) and to obtain information about the use of blood tests for the AIDS virus infection. The file contains approximately 90 variables from the core file (see NATIONAL HEALTH INTERVIEW SURVEY, 1990 [ICPSR 9839]), including sex, age, race, marital status, veteran status, education, income, industry and occupation codes, and limits on activity. Variables unique to this supplement cover attitudes towards and knowledge of AIDS, the effects of the disease, how it is spread, where to obtain information on AIDS, detection of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) with blood tests, how to avoid getting the disease, and personal knowledge of anyone who had the test for AIDS, had tested positively for the virus, or had the disease.

    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: Standardized missing values..

Temporal Coverage
  • Time period: 1990
  • Collection date: 1990
Geographic Coverage
  • United States
Sampled Universe
Civilian noninstitutionalized population of the 50 states and the District of Columbia.
Sampling
The NHIS uses a multistage probability sampling design. Four independent representative samples, which may be used in any combination, were drawn. Black persons were oversampled.
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 age distribution of the sample is 18-24 years (N = 4,732), 25-44 years (N = 17,983), 45-64 years (N = 9,891), 65-69 years (N = 2,479), 70-74 years (N = 2,133), and 75+ years (N = 3,295). The racial/ethnic distribution is White (N = 33,443), Black (N = 5,474), Asian/Pacific Islander (N = 787), Native American (N = 284), multiple (N = 27), and other or unknown (N = 498).
