Abstract: The purpose of the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) is to obtain information about the amount and the distribution of illness, its effects in terms of disability and chronic impairments, and the kinds of health services people receive. Household Record variables in this data collection include type of living quarters, size of family, number of families in the household, and geographic location. Person Record variables include sex, age, race, marital status, veteran status, education, income, industry and occupation codes, and limitations on activity. The Condition Record file contains information for each reported health condition, with specifics on injury and accident reports. The Doctor Visit Record file documents doctor visits within the time period and identifies acute or chronic conditions. The Hospital Episode Record file contains all recalled accounts of hospitalizations in the 12-month period.
