                  1995 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS)
                     Year 2000 Objectives Public Use Data File

 1.  The 1995 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) Year 2000 Objectives
     data file contains data items on five selected topic areas which relate
     to the health objectives for the year 2000 from the Department of Health
     and Human Services (HHS).  The specific Year 2000 questionnaire topics
     and file locations are listed below:

     Section                                                File Location

     A       Tobacco                                           401-430
     B       Nutrition                                         431-475
     C       Clinical Procedures                               476-485
     D       Mental Health                                     486-495
     E       Physical Activity and Fitness                     496-650

 2.  The 1995 Year 2000 topic areas were administered as a supplement to the
     1995 NHIS basic (core) questions.  The supplement was asked of one adult
     sample person per family in half of the households in the 1995 NHIS core.
     The other half of the households were asked the supplement on AIDS
     Knowledge and Attitudes.

     The 1995 Year 2000 file is structured in the following way:

     a.  The NHIS person record from the core questionnaire (locations 1-186)
     b.  Weight fields (locations 201-212)
     c.  Fields necessary for calculating variances (locations 337-352)
     d.  Data from supplement (locations 401-650)

 3.  In 1995, 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
     (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 the term "unknown" is used as a label for NA or Not applicable,
     it includes " not ascertained", "don't know", and/or "refused".


 4.  The overall response rate for the 1995 Year 2000 supplement was 80.9
     percent.  This response rate was calculated as follows:

         Household response rate for the NHIS core (93.8 percent) multiplied
         by 86.2 percent who responded to the Year 2000 supplement yielding
         an overall response rate of 80.9 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 NHIS.  Two weights
     are included on the 1995 file:

     The first weight listed below (i.e., the Year 2000 final basic weight)
     will be used in most analyses of the Year 2000 data.

     The Year 2000 final basic weight (loc. 207-212) 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 401-650.

     The interim basic weight before age-sex-race adjustment (loc 201-206) is
     required by some software packages for variance estimation for surveys
     with complex sample designs.

     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
     poststratification), included on the Year 2000 file are the strata for
     variance estimation (loc. 337-340), the PSU for variance estimation
     (loc. 341), the substratum for variance estimation (loc. 342-343) and the
     type of PSU (loc. 351) 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 annual numbers of events or conditions

     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 26 (number of two-week periods
              In a year) x final basic weight

              =    Total number of events occurring in the population
                   during the annual period, i.e., 1995.

              Example:  Number of bed days (loc. 100-101) x 26 x final basic
              weight (loc. 207-212) = total number of bed days reported for
              the population in 1995.

      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 26 x final basic weight

               =    Total number of acute incidence conditions occurring in the
                    population during 1995.

          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 six months are
          counted.  Therefore, the weighted estimates must be calculated as
          follows:

               Number of discharges x 2 x final basic weight

               =    Total number of discharges occurring in the population in
                    1995.


 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 six 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 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 (1995)

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

     National Health Interview Survey of Topics Related to the Year 2000
     Health Objectives, 1995 (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.

 *Physically handicapped persons were not asked Q.2 regarding specific
  types of exercise but if they indicated that they had exercised (Q.1a),
  the specific types of exercise were recorded in Q.2.  Therefore, the
  number of persons classified as 'Not asked (handicap)' varies in Q.2,
  depending on the number of handicappe people who volunteered that they
  did that type of exercise.
