ABSTRACT

 General Information

      1.   The 1993 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) Access data
           file contains a variety of data items addressing access to
           health care services.

      2.   The 1993 Access topic was administered only in the last half
           of 1993 (Quarters 3 and 4) for everyone in the NHIS.  Some
           questions either in the Access 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.  The data on this
           file might not yield annual estimates similar to that
           obtained if the Access topic was fielded for the entire
           survey year, especially for those variables known to be
           subject to seasonal variation/reporting.

           The 1993 Access file is structured in the following way:

           a.   The NHIS person record from the core questionnaire
                (locations 1-335) (removing annual weight fields)
           b.   The special topic data (locations 336-389)

      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).

      4.   The overall response rate for the 1993 Access was 88.6
           percent.  This response rate was calculated as follows:

           Household response rate from core for the 3rd and 4th
           quarters (94.7 percent) multiplied by 93.6 percent who
           responded to the Access section yielding an overall
           response rate of 88.6 percent.

           Dummy records were created for those with no response to the
           entire section.

 Weights and Variances

      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 1993 file:

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

           The Final Basic Weight (location 210-218) is the 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
           Access 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.

           This weight will be used in conjunction with Access data
           items in file locations 336-389.

           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 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.

 Estimating semi-annual numbers of events or conditions
 
     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 Access 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. 210-218) = 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.
 Calculation of rates for events and conditions

      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.
 Guidelines for Citation of Data

      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:
