              1995 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS)
                   Access to Care Public Use Data File


   1.  The 1995 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) Access to
       Care data file contains a variety of data items addressing
       access to health care services. These data items are
       essentially the same as in other recent years with a few
       exceptions.  The differences are:

       a.  Question 8 (satisfaction with the health care provider) and
           question 10 (provider's ability to meet respondent's needs)
           asked in 1994 were dropped from the 1995 questionnaire.

       b.  Question 11 in 1994 was reworded and moved to question 3b
           in 1995.

       c.  Question 12 in 1994 was reworded, given a 12 month instead
           of a 3 month reference period, and moved to question 9 in
           1995.

       As a result of the Federal government furlough, three weeks of
       data collection were omitted in December of 1995. The weights
       have been adjusted for the smaller fourth quarter sample to
       produce national estimates. However, there may be a minor
       seasonal effect which is not corrected by the weighting.

   2.  The 1995 Access supplement was administered in all of the NHIS
       sample households for the full year with the exception of the
       last 3 weeks in December as mentioned above. Information was
       collected from a household respondent about all family members
       who participated in the NHIS.

       The 1995 Access file is structured in the following way:

       a.  The NHIS person record from the core questionnaire
           (locations 1-200)
       b.  The weight fields (locations 201-335)
       c.  Fields needed for calculating variances (locations 337-352)
       d.  Data from supplement (locations 400-439)

       Note: All data from the Access supplement have been shifted to
       start in location 400 in order to accommodate a longer public use
       person record required by the new sample design in 1995.


    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 impos-
             sible code appeared and;
        (2)  Responses of "don't know" or "refused" when the question
             was asked (codes 9, 99 and 999).

        There were changes to the skip pattern for questions 3a and 3b
        that were known at the time of the January training for field
        representatives and dealt with in the training.  However,
        these changes were not printed in the questionnaire until
        July.  The skip for these questions was reversed and,
        originally, question 3b skipped to question 10 rather than to
        question 4.  As a result, there is some additional non-response
        in questions 3 through 9.

        In addition, due to the complexity of the skip patterns
        beginning with check item A1, some field representatives
        clearly had difficulty following the correct patterns.  As a
        result, some incorrect data was deleted and there is
        significant non-response (coded 8, 98, or 998) in some fields.

   4.  The overall response rate for the 1995 Access supplement was
       85.8 percent.  This response rate was calculated as follows:

            Household response rate from core of 93.8 percent
            multiplied by 91.5 percent who responded to the Access
            section yields an overall response rate of 85.8 percent.

       Dummy records were created for those with no response to the
       entire Access section (see file location 400).  There were
       8,675 persons in the data file where this occurred (8.5% of
       the total NHIS Core sample).

   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.  A set of
       weights are included on the 1995 file:

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



       The Final Basic Weight - Annual (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 be used in conjunction with Access to Care
       data items in file locations 400-439.

       The Final Quarter Basic Weight before age-sex-race/ethnicity
       adjustment (loc. 172-177) is required by some software
       packages for variance estimation for surveys with complex
       sample designs.  This weight is also included on the file.

       As mentioned above, the sample design for the NHIS was changed
       for 1995. Data from 1995 can be combined with data from
       previous years, however, variances for 1995 must be calculated
       separately from variances of previous years.

       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 Final Quarter
       Basic Weight before age-sex-race/ethnicity adjustment(which is
       the weight prior to post-stratification), included on the
       Access file is the stratum 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. 219-227) = 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 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 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 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 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 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:

       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.
