Abstract: The 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 1990 Family Resources Supplement includes variables from the core Person File (see NATIONAL HEALTH INTERVIEW SURVEY, 1990 [ICPSR 9839]), including sex, age, race, marital status, veteran status, education, industry and occupation codes, and limits on activity. Variables unique to this supplement cover individuals' health benefits (Medicare, Medicaid, private hospital insurance, and employer or union-based coverage), amount of coverage and income received from employment, benefits (Social Security, Supplemental Security Income, Railroad Retirement, Disability), public assistance (food stamps, Aid for Dependent Children), and savings or other types of bank accounts.
