1993 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS)
Year 2000 Objectives Public Use Data File


 1.   The 1993 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) Year 2000 data file
      contains data items on 9 selected topic areas which relate to the
      Department's (HHS) Year 2000 Health objectives.  The specific Year 2000
      questionnaire topics and file locations are listed below:

      Section                                  File Location:

      YA   Environmental Health                    336-350
      YB   Tobacco                                 351-366
      YC   Nutrition                               367-406
      YD   Occupational Safety and Health          407-449

      YF   Other Chronic and Disabling Conditions  473-478
      YG   Clinical and Preventive Services        479-504
      YH   Mental Health                           505-510
      YJ   Oral Health                             511-515

 2.   The 1993 Year 2000 topic areas were administered only in the last half of
      1993 (Quarters 3 and 4) to one adult sample person per family.  Some
      questions either in the Year 2000 topic or in the core person data refer
      to a 2 week time period and some conditions, health status and health care
      utilization items are known to have seasonal variations in reporting.  As
      a result, the data on this file might not yield annual estimates similar
      to that obtained if the Year 2000 topic was fielded for the entire survey
      year, especially for those variables known to be subject to seasonal
      variation/reporting.

      The 1993 Year 2000 file is structured in the following way:

      a.   The NHIS person record from the core questionnaire (locations 1-200)
      b.   Weight fields (locations 201-212)
      c.   The special topic data (locations 336-517)

 3.   In 1993, two types of item non-response were identified:

      (1)  "Not ascertained" (codes 8, 98, or 998) includes blanks when there
           should have been a response or when an impossible code appeared and;
      (2)  Responses of "don't know" or "refused" when the question was asked
           (codes 9, 99 and 999).

      For some items, it was determined that there was no meaningful difference
      between "not ascertained" and "don't know" or "refused".  In these cases,
      the two categories were both coded 9 (or 99 or 999, as appropriate) and
      labeled "Unknown"


      NOTE:  When "unknown" is used in an NA or Not applicable label it refers to
      the collective not ascertained and DK, refused

 4.   The overall response rate for the 1993 Year 2000 was 81.2 percent.  This
      response rate was calculated as follows for the 3rd and 4th quarters:

           Household response rate from core (94.7 percent) multiplied by 85.7
           percent who responded to the Year 2000 section yielding an overall
           response rate of 81.2 percent.

 5.   Weights and variances:

      Since the NHIS uses a multistage sample design to represent the civilian
      non-institutionalized population of the United States, weights must be
      used to make accurate estimates based on data from the National Health
      Interview Survey.  Two weights are included on the 1993 file:

      The first weight listed below (i.e. the Final Year 2000 Basic Weight) will
      be used in most analyses of the Year 2000 data.

      The Final Basic Weight (location 207-212), calculated for each sample
      person, is the functional equivalent of the semi-Annual Final Basic Weight
      found on the NHIS Person Record of the Basic Health and Demographic
      component of the survey (i.e. the Core questionnaire).  Because the Year
      2000 supplement was only conducted during the third and fourth quarters of
      1993, a national estimate of all person level variables can be made using
      this weight.

      The Year 2000 Final Basic Weight differs from that calculated for the Core
      data file in that the Year 2000 sample was re-weighted to account for non-
      response and the selection of only one adult per family.

      This weight will be used in conjunction with Year 2000 data items in file
      locations 336-517.

      Interim Basic Weights (before age-sex-race adjustment) are required by
      some software packages for variance estimation for surveys with complex
      sample designs.  This weight is also included on the file.

      There are a number of computer programs that yield variance estimates for
      data based on complex sample surveys.  Some are based on replication
      approaches and others are based on Taylor linearization approaches.  In
      addition to the Interim Basic Weight (which is the weight prior to
      poststratifi-cation), included on the Year 2000 file is the Full Sample
      Stratum Identifier (loc. 179-181), the Pseudo Primary Sampling Unit (PSU)
      Codes (loc. 187-189), and the Type of PSU (loc. 185) to permit the analyst
      the capability of using such variance estimation procedures.  These
      variables and weights are necessary for directly calculating sampling
      variances.

 6.   Estimating semi-annual numbers of events or conditions

      Note:  The data on this file might not yield annual estimates similar to
      that obtained if the Year 2000 topic was fielded for the entire survey
      year, especially for those variables known to be subject to seasonal
      variation/reporting.

      a.   To reduce respondent error, the recall period for questions about
           some events is limited to two weeks.  These events are: bed days and
           other restricted activity days, work loss and school loss days, and
           doctor visits.  The two-week variables are found in locations 98-107
           and 120-121.  Estimates of the total number of occurrences of these
           events in the population can be derived as follows:

                Number of events x 13 (number of two-week
                periods in a year) x Final Basic Weight

                =    Total number of events occurring in the
                     population during the semi-annual period,
                     i.e. 1993.

           Example:  Number of bed days (loc. 100-101) x 13 x Final Basic Weight
           (loc. 207-212) = total number of bed days reported for the population
           in 1993.

      b.   The recall period for acute incidence conditions is also two weeks
           and a national estimate of the total number of acute incidence
           conditions is calculated using the same procedures as for two-week
           events for the semi-annual period.

                Number of acute incidence conditions x 13 x Final Basic Weight

                =    Total number of acute incidence conditions occurring in the
                     population during the last half of 1993.

           Note:  An acute incidence condition is an acute condition with onset
           during the two weeks preceding the date of interview.

      c.   The recall period for information on hospitalizations is 12 months.
           However, in calculating number of discharges (locations 132-133, 137-
           138), only discharges occurring in the past 6 months are counted.
           Therefore, the weighted estimates must be calculated as follows:

                Number of discharges x Final Basic Weight

                =    Total number of discharges occurring in the population in
                     the last half of 1993.


 7.   Calculation of rates for events and conditions:

      The number of events or conditions estimated for the population, as
      described in item 6, above, can be used as the basis for calculating rates
      of occurrence of these events (or conditions) per person and per 100
      persons for the total U.S. population and for various population subgroups.

      Note:  Only rates can be estimated from these data.  The percent of the
      population experiencing a particular type of event during the data year
      cannot be estimated. {The percent of the population experiencing the event
      in the reporting period (i.e. two weeks or 6 months) can be estimated but
      is generally not meaningful.}

 8.   Data on hospital episodes and days, based on a 12-month recall are in
      locations 122-131.  The Final Basic Weight is used for calculating
      estimates of these events in the same way it is used for all other person-
      based variables.  These variables do permit estimating the percent of the
      population in this semi annual period experiencing a hospital episode in
      the past year and the percent of that population having a specified number
      of hospital days.

 9.   Guidelines for Citation of Data

      With the goal of mutual benefit, the National Center for Health Statistics
      (NCHS) requests that recipients of data files cooperate in certain actions
      related to their use.

      Any published material derived from the data should acknowledge NCHS as the
      original source.  The suggested citation to appear at the bottom of all
      tables is as follows:

           Source:  National Center for Health Statistics (1993)

      When cited in a bibliography, the suggested citation should read:

      National Center for Health Statistics (1994).  Data File Documentation,
      National Health Interview Survey of Topics Related to the Year 2000 Health
      Objectives, 1993 (machine readable data file and documentation), National
      Center for Health Statistics, Hyattsville, Maryland

      The published material should also include a disclaimer that credits any
      analyses, interpretations, or conclusions reached to the author (recipient
      of the data file) and not to NCHS, which is responsible only for the
      initial data.  Consumers who wish to publish a technical description of
      the data should make a reasonable effort to insure that the description is
      not inconsistent with that published by NCHS.
