o    New questions were added and the wording of some questions was changed
     during the course of the six-year survey.   Users should be aware that
     these changes may account for large numbers of records containing
     blanks in these variables. In particular, the Family Questionnaire
     section B on Health Insurance and section F on Family Characteristics
     contain quite a few questions that were changed during the survey. 
     There were three different versions of some of those questions. 
o    Two aspects of NHANES III, especially, should be taken into account
     when conducting any analyses: the sample weights and the complex survey
     design.  With the extensive oversampling of blacks, Mexican Americans,
     young children and older adults in NHANES III, it is IMPERATIVE that
     sample weights be used in all analyses in order to interpret the
     findings correctly. 
o    Examine the range and frequency of values of a variable before
     conducting analyses of data.  The range may include unusual or
     unexpected values.  The frequency counts may be useful to determine
     which analyses may be worthwhile.
o    Interviewers rated the reliability of responses at the completion of
     interviews.  While all data collected are presented on this data file,
     it is strongly recommended that responses rated "unreliable" should be
     omitted from analyses. 
o    The Public Health Service Act (Section 308(d)) provides that the data
     collected by the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), Centers
     for Disease Control and Prevention, may be used ONLY for the purpose of
     health statistical reporting and analysis.  Any effort to determine the
     identity of any reported case is prohibited by this law.  NCHS does all
     it can to assure that the identity of data subjects cannot be
     disclosed. All direct identifiers, as well as any characteristics that
     might lead to identification, are omitted from the dataset.  Any
     intentional identification or disclosure of a person or establishment
     violates the assurances of confidentiality given to the providers of
     the information. Therefore, users will:
1.   Use the data in this dataset for statistical reporting and analysis
     only.
2.   Make no use of the identity of any person or establishment discovered
     inadvertently and advise the Director, NCHS, of any such discovery.
3.   Not link this dataset with individually identifiable data from other
     NCHS or non-NCHS datasets.
By using these data, you signify your agreement to comply with the above-
stated statutorily based requirements.

GENERAL NOTES
Numeric responses: 

Users should pay careful attention to questions throughout NHANES III
forms that are coded using two variables to record a numeric response.
The first variable contains the numeric portion of the response
and the second variable contains the units of measure.  All of these
questions were recoded and replaced with standardized variables.  For
example, responses in days, weeks, or months were recoded to number of times
per month.
Rounding: 

Responses that included fractional answers were rounded off when the
code categories were integers only.  Fractions of less than 1/2 were
dropped; fractions of 1/2 or more were rounded up to the next whole
integer.  An example would be a response of 2 1/2 years which was rounded up
to 3 years.  Rounding was not done if units of measure allowed conversion of
fractional responses to an integer response.  For example, a response of "1
1/2 packs of cigarettes" was converted to 30 cigarettes since the variable
allowed for expression of the answer in cigarettes as well as packs.
Ranges: 

If a response was given as a range or an imprecise number, rules were
used to code the response if the interviewer was unable to obtain an 
exact number.  For example, if a person said "in my early 50's", "in my mid-
30's", or "in my late 20's", the response was coded as 53 for "early 50's",
35 for "mid-30's", and 28 for "late 20's".  If a range was given, the mid-
point of the range was used and any fractions were rounded off.  For
example, a response of "30-35" was coded as 33.
Which AGE variable to use: 

Each sample person has an age at screening interview which is almost
always calculated using the date of interview and the date of birth.
For each examined sample person, there is an age at exam calculated
using date of exam and date of birth.  Since the sample person was
selected into the survey based on age at screening interview and since
this determined which components of the survey he/she was eligible to
receive, the most appropriate age to use in any NHANES III analyses is "age
at interview" (HSAGEI and HSAGEU).  There are a few exceptions to this rule. 
In certain analyses of infants and young children, age at exam may be a more
appropriate choice because of the many changes that occur in growth and
development during this time period.  In general, age at screening interview
is the appropriate age variable to use in most NHANES III analyses.
Multiple responses possible: 

The user should be aware that there are a number of questions asked
during the NHANES III interviews where multiple affirmative responses
were possible.  In these situations, the number of "yes" responses
to the question will be more than the number of sample persons who
were asked the question.
Sections of questionnaires not included in data file: 

Some questions or sections of questionnaires are not released on public
use data files.  These data are the sensitive and personal data that
were collected in the survey for the purpose of longitudinal follow-up
studies and are not released by NCHS for confidentiality reasons.  Some
Some sections of the questionnaires were used for administrative
purposes (Diabetes Review in the household youth questionnaire) and
are not being released.  Other sections (Vitamin, Mineral and
Medicine Usage) are still being processed and will be released at a
later time.
Changes in questionnaires during six-year survey: 

Every attempt was made to keep the questions exactly the same during
the entire six years of NHANES III.  However, because of certain Public 
Health Service requirements, some additional questions were added at the 
end of the third year of NHANES III.  The primary areas where these 
changes occurred were in the household family questionnaire but other 
components changed as well.  The family questionnaire changes occurred 
in the areas of income questions, food security, and health insurance 
coverage.  The NHANES III public release data files have been created 
to reflect the version of the questionnaires published in "Plan and 
Operation of the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 
1988-94", that is, the versions used at the end of the second phase of 
the survey.  For those "new" questions not asked until the last three 
years of the survey, all the data are blank for those persons
interviewed during the first three years. 
Unlikely or inconsistent responses or data values: 

The NHANES III data were edited carefully for skip pattern and range
errors as well as for consistency between related questions.  Somewhat
arbitrary but reasonable limits were usually set regarding what extreme
values were possible or impossible.  If a response was determined to
impossible, that response was edited and recoded "blank but applicable".
Food frequency questions were an exception; even if the frequency 
stated seemed highly improbable, answers were not changed.  Analysts
are free to exclude extreme values if they wish.  Respondents were
not always consistent in their answers to questions, either because
of misunderstanding or not remembering precisely. Inconsistent
responses were examined, but if it could not be determined which was
the "correct" response, then both values may have been left as coded
Other and specify responses: 
Responses to "other" and "specify" were recoded ("backcoded")
to existing categories, if possible.  For responses that could
not be recoded, new code categories were created if the information
was deemed analytically useful.  Caution should be used in inter-
preting data from these new categories because there is no way of
knowing which other respondents would have selected one of the new
categories if they had been given the options.

APPENDIX B - COMPENDIUM OF PHYSICAL ACTIVITIES (HAT1-HAT30)
SURVEY OF ACTIVITY, FITNESS, AND EXERCISE INSTRUCTIONS 
FOR CODING THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF ACTIVITIES                                      
                                      
The encyclopedia is organized by Major Headings.  The major headings are
subcategorized into Specific Activities.  Each specific activity lists the
associated MET levels and its code for data entry.
The major headings of the encyclopedia are:  
   BICYCLING           CONDITIONING EXERCISES
   DANCING             FISHING AND HUNTING
   HOME ACTIVITIES     HOME REPAIR
   INACTIVITY          LAWN AND GARDEN
   MISCELLANEOUS       MUSIC PLAYING
   OCCUPATION          RUNNING
   SELF CARE           SEXUAL ACTIVITY
   SPORTS              TRANSPORTATION
   WATER ACTIVITIES    WALKING
   WINTER ACTIVITIES   
The specific activity descriptions range from a general classification of
the activity to a detailed description of the activity and its specific
intensity.  This is to accommodate for the coding of questionnaires and
diaries that may range from a general classification of an activity (i.e.,
played tennis) to a very detailed description of an activity (i.e., played
singles tennis, vigorously).
If a specific activity does not fit into any of the categories in the
encyclopedia, it should be 'flagged' and questions should be addressed to
Barbara Ainsworth.
General Instructions for coding:
BICYCLING
Stationary cycling using cycle ergometers (all types), wind trainers, or
other conditioning devices should be classified under the major heading of
Conditioning Exercise, stationary cycling specific activities (codes 02010
to 02015).
Bicycling outdoors should be coded as general (< 10 mph) if no specific
speed, intensity, or setting (racing, leisure, to work, etc.) is listed
(code 01010).  Since the list does not account for differences in wind
conditions, ignore any wind conditions listed.
If bicycling is given an effort rating without listing any speed, code it
as bicycling, 10-11 mph, leisure, slow, light effort (code 01020),
bicycling, 12-13 mph, leisure, moderate, moderate effort (code 01030) or
bicycling, 14-15 mph, leisure or racing, fast, vigorous effort (code
01040).
If bicycling is given a speed rating, with or without an effort rating,
classify it under the speed listed using the codes described above.
If bicycling is performed in a race, classify it as general racing if no
descriptors about drafting are given (code 01050).  If information is
given about the speed or drafting practices for the subject in the race,
code as: code 01050 (bicycling, 16-19 mph, racing/not drafting or > 19 mph
drafting, very fast) or code 01060 (bicycling, > 20 mph, racing, not
drafting).
Using a mountain bike in the city should be classified as bicycling,
general (code 01010).  If a subject reports cycling on mountain trails or
on a BMX course, code the activity as code 01009.
CONDITIONING EXERCISES
If stationary cycling does not have an intensity rating in the diary or on
a questionnaire, code it as bicycling, stationary, general (code 02010). 
If an intensity is given (in watts or as light, moderate, or vigorous),
code it according to the descriptors in codes 02011 to 02015.
Using a rowing machine, either in a health club or at home, should be
coded as rowing, stationary ergometer, general (code 02070) if no
intensity is given.  If intensities are given in watts or in effort, code
it as described in the encyclopedia (codes 02071 to 02074).
If a calisthenics program does not identify an intensity or exercise type
(i.e., push-ups or pull-ups), classify it as calisthenics, home exercise,
light or moderate effort, general (code 02030).
If a calisthenics program is described as a light or moderate type of
activity (i.e., performing back exercises) but indicates a vigorous
effort, code it as calisthenics, general (code 02030).
Body building, power lifting, or strenuous weight lifting should be
classified as a heavy weight lifting workout (code 02050).  Since the list
does not account for differences in weight training apparatus, ignore
descriptions of the type of equipment used.
If a diary or a questionnaire lists only weight lifting without any
descriptors, or a light effort weight lifting program, code it as weight
lifting, general, light effort (code 02130).
If a diary does not specify the type of exercise performed at a health
club, classify it as health club, general (code 02060).  If a subject
performs weight lifting, aerobic dance, circuit training, treadmill
running, etc. at a health club, classify it under its separate
classification (see major headings of calisthenics, dancing, walking, or
running).
If an aerobic dance class, conditioning program, circuit training program,
or water calisthenics program is broken down into its component parts
(i.e., 10 min. jogging in place, 10 min. sit-ups, 10 min. stretching),
code it as the entire activity (example, code as dancing - aerobic dance,
general, code 03025).
There are no effort, speed, or intensity breakdowns in the encyclopedia
for the specific activities of stair-treadmill ergometer (code 02065), ski
machine (code 02080), water aerobics or water calisthenics (code 02120),
circuit training (code 02040), and slimnastics (code 02090).  Code these
as general, even though effort or intensities may vary in the description
of the activity in the diary or on the questionnaire.
DANCING
If aerobic dancing is listed in the diary or on a questionnaire and does
not identify the type (high- or low-impact), code it as aerobic dance,
general (code 03025).
If a diary or questionnaire does not describe the type of dancing
performed, code it as dancing, general (code 03025).
If the aerobic dance or modern/ballet dance activity is broken down in to
sub-categories of movement (i.e., stretching, jumping, leaping,
calisthenics, etc.), code the movements as the entire specific activity
(example: dancing, aerobic, high impact, code 03021).
FISHING AND HUNTING
If hunting is listed as an activity, without any descriptors, code it as
hunting, general (code 04100).
HOME ACTIVITIES
House cleaning should be categorized as light (code 05040) or heavy (code
05020).  Examples for each are given in the description of the specific
activities.  If the descriptors for the word 'house cleaning' is not
given, classify it as cleaning, house or cabin, general (code 05030).
Activities associated with grocery shopping are found under the major
heading of Home Activity.  Food shopping with a grocery cart is code
05060.  Code food shopping without a grocery cart under putting away
groceries, carrying groceries, shopping without a grocery cart (code
05055).  Carrying groceries and putting groceries away is coded 05055.
Moving from one household to another is coded as moving household items,
carrying boxes (code 05145).  Moving household items up stairs (i.e.
boxes, furniture) is coded as moving household items upstairs, carrying
boxes or furniture (code 05150).  Moving household furniture, either in
the moving process or in the house for any reason, is coded 05120.
Making the bed on a daily basis is coded 05100.  Changing the bed sheets
is coded as cleaning, light (code 05040).
HOME REPAIR
Any painting outside of the house (i.e., fence, the house, barn) is coded
as painting, outside house (code 06150).
INACTIVITY
Passive activity that involves sitting (example, watching television, the
theater, or a movie, resting, listening to music or a lecture) is coded as
sitting quietly (code 07020).
Sitting and reading a book or newspaper is listed under the major heading
of Miscellaneous, reading, book, newspaper, etc. (code 09030).
Sitting and writing is listed under the major heading of Miscellaneous,
writing (code 09040).
Passive activity that involves reclining (example, watching television,
listening to music, resting) is coded as lying quietly (code 07010).
Passive activity that involves standing (example, standing in line - no
physical activity while standing, watching a performance, etc.) is coded
as standing quietly (code 07040).
LAWN AND GARDEN
If only 'mowing the lawn' is listed and without the type of lawnmower
being identified code as mowing lawn, general (code 08095).
Gardening is classified as general if specific gardening activities are
not listed (code 08245).
Pulling weeds in the garden is coded as weeding, cultivating garden if the
questionnaire or diary does not identify that tools were used in the
process (code 08240).
Working in the garden with a specific type of tool (hoe, hula hoe, spade,
etc.) code it as digging, spading, filling garden (code 08050).
Removing snow may be done by one of three methods: Shoveling, snow, by
hand (code 08200), walking and operating a snow blower (code 08130), or
riding a snow blower (code 08180).
MISCELLANEOUS
Writing (code 09040) or reading (code 09030) while sitting belong in the
Miscellaneous heading and not under the major heading of Inactivity.
MUSIC PLAYING
Most variations on musical instruments will be according to the setting
(i.e., rock and roll band, orchestra, marching band, concert band,
standing on the stage, performance, practice, in a church etc.).  Since
the encyclopedia does not consider differences in setting (except for
marching band and guitar playing), code all musical instruments as listed
in the encyclopedia.
OCCUPATION
Types of occupational activities that are not listed separately under
specific activities (i.e. run chemistry laboratory experiments), should be
placed into the types of energy expenditure classifications best
describing the activity.  See sitting:light (code 11580), sitting:moderate
(code 11590), standing:light (code 11600), standing:light/moderate (code
11610), standing:moderate (code 11620), standing:moderate/heavy (code
11630).
Driving an automobile or a light truck for employment (taxi cab, salesman,
contractor, ambulance driver, bus driver), should be listed under the
major heading of Transportation, automobile or light truck (not a semi)
driving (code 06010).
Performing skin or SCUBA diving as an occupation is listed under the major
heading of Water Activities, and the specific activity of skindiving or
SCUBA diving as a frogman (code 18170).
Walking on the job and carrying light-weight objects at a moderate speed
(i.e., briefcase) is coded walking, 3.0 mph, moderately and carrying light
objects less than 25 lbs (code 11800).
Walking on the job and carrying light-weight objects at a slow speed
(i.e., briefcase) is coded walking, 2.5 mph, slowly and carrying light
objects less than 25 lbs (code 11795).
Walking on the job and carrying light-weight objects at a  brisk speed
(i.e., briefcase) is coded walking, 3.5 mph, moderately and carrying light
objects less than 25 lbs (code 11810).
Walking and carrying objects that are heavy should be given codes 11820 to
11870.  Since the encyclopedia does not account for walking speed or
effort expended while carrying heavy objects, ignore any speeds or efforts
given in the diary or on the questionnaire.
RUNNING
If a diary or questionnaire only lists 'jogging' without listing a speed,
the specific activity should be coded as jogging, general (code 12020).
If a diary or questionnaire only lists 'running' without listing a speed,
the specific activity should be coded as running, general (code 12150).
Running is not classified into treadmill or outdoor running.  Running on a
treadmill or outdoors should be coded by the speed of the run (codes 12030
to 12130).  If no speed is given, code running as running, general
(12150).
SELF CARE
The encyclopedia does not account for effort ratings.  All items are coded
as a general category.
SEXUAL ACTIVITY
Code sexual activity according to the descriptors for effort: light (code
14030), moderate (code 14020), vigorous (code 14030).
SPORTS
All specific activities for sports have a general category for the 
activities listed.  These should be used only when the diary or
questionnaire does not give detailed information about the intensity or
quality of activity listed.
Some specific activities only have a general category listed.  This should
be used even though the diary or questionnaire may list more detailed
information.
TRANSPORTATION
The actual driving involved in light-weight truck driving or automobile
driving for employment is coded automobile or light truck (not a semi)
driving (code 16010).
Driving a heavy truck (semi), tractor, or bus is given the code (16050).
Activities related to being a truck driver for employment are listed under
the major heading Occupation (example: truck driving, loading and
unloading truck (code 11766).
Being a passenger in an automobile is classified under the major heading
of Inactivity, sitting quietly (code 07020).
WALKING  
Household walking is classified under the major heading of Walking.  The
category is walking, less than 2.0 mph, level ground, strolling, household
walking, very slow < 2 mph (code 17150), regardless if the subject
identified the walking speed as slow, moderate, or brisk.
The standard walking speed in SAFE is moderate and not carrying anything. 
This category is walking, 3.0 mph, level, moderate, firm surface (code
17190).  This category is used if one does not classify their speed as
slow, moderate, or brisk AND the walking is not household.  This category
is used in a subject classifies their walking speed as moderate.
Walking, slowly, not in the house is coded as walking, 2.0 mph, level,
slow, firm surface (code 17160).  It is assumed the subject is not
carrying anything.
Walking, briskly, not in the house is coded as walking, 3.5 mph, level,
brisk, firm surface (code 17200).
Walking, very briskly, not in the house is coded as walking, 4.0 mph, firm
surface, very brisk (code 17220).
If a subject is walking and carrying something (briefcase or something
heavier), the major heading is Occupation and the specific activity is
walking and carrying the appropriate weighted load (codes 11795 to 11810).
If a subject is moving their household and walking, carrying boxes or
furniture (either up stairs or on a level surface), the major heading is
Home Activities (moving household items, code 05145; moving household
items upstairs, code 05150).
If a subject is walking and carrying groceries (on level ground), the
major heading is Home Activities (code 05055).
If a subject is walking and carrying heavy items on the job, the major
heading is Occupation (codes 11820 to 11850).
If a subject is backpacking, regardless of descriptors attached, the code
is backpacking, general (code 17010).
Walking and carrying a suitcase should be coded as carrying child or 15
pound load (code 17020).  The encyclopedia does not account for variations
in speed or effort while carrying luggage or a child.
Mountain climbing should be classified as general (rock or mountain
climbing, code 17120) if there are no descriptors about the weight of the
load carried up the mountain.  If the questionnaire or diary describes the
weight of the load carried up the hill or mountain code the activity as
climbing hills with the appropriate load (codes 17030 to 17060).
Walking on a grassy area (golf course, in a park, etc.) should be coded as
walking, grass track (code 17260).  Since the encyclopedia does not
account for variations in walking speed on a grassy area, ignore
recordings of walking speed or effort in the diary or on a questionnaire. 
If the walking is not on a grassy area, code the activity according to
walking speed (codes 17150 to 17230).
Walking to work or to class should be coded as 17270.  The encyclopedia
does not account for walking speed or effort in this activity.  Even
though a speed or effort is given for the walking, do not code walking to
work or to class in any other walking category.  If the diary does not
specify that the walking was to work or to class, then code the walking
according to speed (codes 17150 to 17230).
Hiking and cross country walking (code 17080) should be used only if the
walking activity lasted 3 hours or more.  Do not use this category for
backpacking, but for day hikes.
 
WATER ACTIVITIES 
Swimming should be coded as leisurely, not lap swimming, general (code
18310) if no descriptors about stroke, speed, or swimming location are
given.
Lap swimming should be coded as swimming laps, freestyle, slow (code
18240) if the activity is described as lap swimming, light or moderate
effort, but no stroke or speed are given.  Swimming laps should be coded
as swimming, laps, freestyle, fast (code 18230) if the activity is
described as lap swimming, vigorous effort, but no stroke or speed are
given.
Swimming crawl should be coded as swimming, crawl, slow (50 yards/minute)
(code 18290) if no speed is given and the effort is rated light or
moderate.  Swimming crawl should be coded as swimming, craw, fast (75
yards/minute) (code 18280) if no speed is given, but the effort is rated
as vigorous.

APPENDIX C - GEOGRAPHIC CODES
Codes for variables HFA6XR and HFHFIPR              
Based on FIPS PUB 10-3 Codes for Countries, Dependencies, 
Areas of Special Sovereignty, and Their Principal Administrative 
Divisions.
This appendix describes a subset of the overall FIPS PUB 10-3 codes.
Although all countries are represented, only selected lower divisions
(i.e. states or provinces) within each country are listed. In NHANES III,
questions regarding birthplace or place lived longest were asked in the
context of a country or a state within the Unites States. However, some
respondents gave additional detail. This is reflected in the Countries for
which we have provided lower division-level codes. To ignore this level of
detail simply use the first two characters of the code. Conversely, some
respondents gave answers that were too vague (i.e. Europe). These are
represented by the numeric fill-value categories at the end of this code
table.
