                 1994 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS)
                     Access to Care Public Use Data File

          
           DSN: CC37.NHIS94.ACCESSX


      1.   The 1994 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) Access to
           Care data file contains a variety of data items addressing
           access to health care services.

      2.   The 1994 Access to Care topic was administered in all of the
           NHIS sample households for the full year. Information was
           collected from a household respondent about all family mem-
           bers who participated in the NHIS.

           The 1994 Access to Care file is structured in the following
           way:

                a.   The NHIS person record from the core questionnaire
                     (locations 1-335)
                b.   The special topic data (locations 336-384)

      3.   In 1994, 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 im-
                possible code appeared and
           (2)  Responses of "don't know" or "refused" when the ques-
                tion was asked (codes 9, 99 and 999).

      4.   The overall response rate for the 1994 Access was 85.4 per-
           cent.  This response rate was calculated as follows:

                Household response rate from core (94.1 percent) mul-
                tiplied by 90.8 percent who responded to the Access
                section yields an overall response rate of 85.4 per-
                cent.

           Dummy records were created for those with no response to the
           entire section (see file location 384).

      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.  A set of weights is included
           on the 1994 file.

           The Annual Final Basic Weight will be used in most analyses
           of the Access to Care data.  The Annual Final Basic Weight
           (location 219-227) is the equivalent of the 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). A national estimate of all person-level
           variables can be made using this weight.

           This weight will also be used in conjunction with Access to
           Care data items in file locations 336-384.

           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 (location 172-177).

           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 poststratifica-
           tion), included on the Access 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 annual numbers of events or conditions

           a.   To reduce respondent error, the recall period for ques-
                tions 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. 1994.

                Example:  Number of bed days (Loc. 100-101) x 26 x
                Final Basic Weight (Loc. 219-227) = total number of bed
                days reported for the population in 1994.

           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 annual period.

                     Number of acute incidence conditions x 26 x Final
                     Basic Weight

                     =    Total number of acute incidence conditions
                          occurring in the population during 1994.

                Note:  An acute incidence condition is an acute condi-
                tion 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 dis-
                charges (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 2 x Final Basic Weight

                     =    Total number of discharges occurring in the
                          population in 1994.

      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 sub-
           groups.

           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 annual period experiencing a hospital episode in the
           past year and the percent of that population having a speci-
           fied 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 ack-
           nowledge NCHS as the original source.  The suggested cita-
           tion to appear at the bottom of all tables is as follows:

                Source:  National Center for Health Statistics (1994)

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