US National Center for Health Statistics Data Update: National Health Interview Survey 2011 Imputed Income Files: “The Division of Health Interview Statistics (DHIS) of the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) is pleased to announce the Internet release of five Imputed Family Income/Personal Earnings files from the 2011 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS). To increase usability while maintaining respondent confidentiality, the 2011 NHIS Imputed Family Income/Personal Earnings files contain dollar amount point estimates for family income and personal earnings, top-coded at the 95th percentile of the appropriate distribution. Compared to the 1997 – 2008 NHIS Imputed Family Income/Personal Earning files, instead of family income/personal earnings in intervals, detail is available in the 2009 – 2011 NHIS imputed income files where top-coded dollar amount point estimates are released… The NHIS provides a rich source of data for studying relationships between income and health and also for monitoring health and health care for persons at different income levels. There is particular interest in the health of vulnerable populations such as those with low income, as well as their access to health care and their use of health care. However, as is common in population surveys, nonresponse rates are high on two key items, total family income in the previous calendar year and personal earnings from employment in the previous calendar year.  To handle the problem of missing data on family income and personal earnings in the NHIS, the National Center for Health Statistics has created imputations of these items.”
