                     THE SECOND SUPPLEMENT ON AGING (SOA II)
                               Public Use Data File

 I.  Background

 Elderly Americans are major consumers of health care services in the United
 States.  Of the estimated $660 billion spent on personal health care in 1991,
 older Americans age 65 and over (who comprised roughly 12+ percent of the
 total population) accounted for 36 percent ($238 billion) of all such
 spending.  Moreover, the aged population was responsible for approximately 60
 percent of all publicly financed personal health care (1).  Absent a dramatic
 decline in morbidity in the older population, these proportions are expected
 to grow substantially as our population continues to age.

 Because health care expenses are greatest during periods of declining health,
 increasing disability and institutionalization, the maintenance of good health
 and functional independence among the elderly is one of the most important
 goals of health promotion and disease prevention initiatives in our aging
 society.  Postponing declines in functional status and the onset of chronic
 disease, disability, and institutionalization can enhance the lives of millions
 of Americans while substantially reducing the cost of federally-funded medical
 care.  To be effective, health care policy and health promotion programs need
 reliable survey data that help identify the complex interactions between
 health and environmental, sociodemographic, social, and economic factors, and
 also provide information on important population trends.

 Recognizing the need for quality data on the health status of the elderly, the
 National Center for Health Statistics, with the support of and in collabora-
 tion with the National Institute on Aging, launched the first Longitudinal
 Study of Aging (LSOA) between 1984 and 1990.  The Supplement on Aging (SOA),
 conducted in conjunction with the 1984 National Health Interview Survey
 (NHIS), served as the baseline for the study.  The LSOA followed the cohort of
 persons who were age 70 and above at the time of the SOA through three waves
 of followup at approximately two-year intervals, in 1986, 1988 and 1990.

 The LSOA was designed to:

     Describe the processes through which individuals pass from being function-
     ally independent and living in the community through becoming functionally
     dependent, institutionalized and/or deceased;

     Measure the interrelationships between change in functional status, living
     arrangements, and receipt of health care among the elderly;

     Provide mortality rates for major demographic, social, economic, and health
     subgroups that are not available from the vital statistics system; and

     Provide a high-quality national database for a broad range of scholars
     conducting research on the oldest-old and on persons approaching these ages.
     The rationale was that having one high-quality database that was available
     to the entire research community would be more efficient for many purposes
     than having many small studies available to individual researchers.


 Data from the SOA and LSOA have been the most widely used databases for
 research and policy analysis relevant to the older population.  Version 5 of
 the LSOA data file, which contains information from all four interview waves
 (1984-1990) and mortality and Medicare data available from record matches
 through July 1991, was released in September, 1993.  Although there will be no
 more interviews for the LSOA, passive followup continues and data from these
 record matches will be released for many years to come.  For more information
 on the survey design and content of the SOA and LSOA, please refer to the two
 publications cited at the end of this document (2,3).

 The body of research emanating from the SOA and the LSOA has greatly increased
 our understanding of the process of aging and the interaction of health,
 functioning, physical mobility, social support, and the use of formal and
 informal care among the oldest members of the population.  Data from both the
 SOA and the LSOA will continue to add to our knowledge, as much analysis is
 still underway and has yet to appear in the literature.

 But at a moment in our history when the maintenance of good health into old age
 has become both a personal aspiration and a critical societal goal, much more
 needs to be learned about the aging process so that cost-effective policies
 and programs may be implemented.  For example, in order to forecast future
 demands that will be placed on the health care system by the elderly, it is of
 critical importance to determine whether the apparent decrease in disability
 among older persons during the 1980's has continued into the 1990's and, if so,
 what factors are responsible for this trend.  In addition, it is important to
 gain additional insight into: 1) the processes by which health behaviors,
 disease, and cognitive and emotional states impact on physical functioning and
 disability; 2) the processes by which personal attitudes and social and
 community support appear to mitigate the impact of physical impairment; and
 3) the gender and socioeconomic differentials in the health of older persons,
 particularly the unique burden borne by elderly women.

 In response to these pressing concerns, the National Center for Health
 Statistics and the National Institute on Aging decided to conduct the Second
 Supplement on Aging (SOA II), roughly 10 years after the original SOA, with a
 new cohort of persons age 70 years and over.  Because the SOA II closely
 replicates the SOA in its methodology and content, it is uniquely poised to
 provide the data necessary for analyzing important temporal changes in health
 and functioning among older Americans.

 II.  The Second Supplement on Aging

 Survey Goals and Objectives

 The SOA II has four specific aims:

 1.   To provide a replication of the first SOA in order to determine whether
      there have been changes in the level of disability among older persons
      between 1984 and the mid-1990s.  Availability of replicated health and
      functioning measures and their covariates collected on two distinct
      cohorts will enable researchers to evaluate whether the prevalence of
      disability or the factors associated with disability are different for the
      current cohort of women and men age 70 years and over compared to the
      cohort who were age 70 years and over ten years prior.


 2.   To provide information on the causes and correlates of changes in health
      and functioning in older Americans, including background demographic
      characteristics, health behaviors and attitudes, preexisting illness, and
      social and environmental support.

 3.   To provide information on the sequence and consequences of health events,
      including utilization of health care and services for assisted community
      living, on the physiological consequences of disability such as pain and
      fatigue, on social consequences such as changes in social activities,
      living arrangements, social support, and use of community services, and
      on the deployment of assisted living strategies and accessibility of
      technological and environmental adaptations.

 4.   To serve as the baseline for the first national second generation
      prospective study focussing on older Americans, the Second Longitudinal
      Study of Aging (LSOA II).

 Survey Design

 Data provided on the SOA II data tape was obtained from several sources: 1) the
 1994 NHIS Core questionnaire, 2) the Access to Care Supplement to the 1994
 NHIS, 3) Phase 1 of the National Health Interview Survey on Disability
 (NHIS-D), and 4) Phase 2 of NHIS-D.  The 1994 NHIS Core, Access to Care
 Supplement and the Phase 1 NHIS-D were completed by household respondents
 during the initial interview, which took place between January and December of
 1994.  Phase 2 of the NHIS-D was completed by individual survey respondents
 during a separate contact, 7 to 17 months after the initial interview.  Each
 of these surveys and the way in which it ties into the SOA II is described in
 more detail below.

 In 1994, the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), an annual in-person
 interview survey of the noninstitutionalized civilian population of the
 United States, was used as a vehicle to launch the 1994-95 National Health
 Interview Survey on Disability (NHIS-D).  The NHIS-D was designed to collect
 data that can be used to understand disability, to develop public health
 policy, to produce simple prevalence estimates of numerous health conditions,
 and to provide descriptive baseline statistics on the effects of disabilities.
 For more information on the NHIS-D, please refer to the documentation cited at
 the end of this document; the coversheet for the NHIS-D documentation provides
 a more detailed description of this survey (4).

 The NHIS-D was collected in two phases.  Phase 1 was conducted at the time of
 the 1994 NHIS Core interview.  The respondent for Phase 1 NHIS-D was the
 household respondent from whom the NHIS Core data were collected.  The Phase 1
 questionnaire asked about (1) pathology and/or impairment, (2) functional
 limitation, and (3) disability.  These factors were then used to determine
 eligibility for the second phase of the NHIS-D, also known as the Disability
 Followback Survey (DFS).  Criteria for screening individuals into Phase 2 of
 the NHIS-D was based on data from the Phase 1 interview, the NHIS Core
 interview, and the Family Resources Supplement.  Individuals who were
 receiving disability benefits, who had specific impairments or were limited in
 their usual activities, or who had made adaptations due to the presence of a
 health condition were selected for inclusion in Phase 2 of the NHIS-D.  The
 screening criteria were quite broad and, as a result, over 50% of those aged
 70 and older in the 1994 NHIS sample screened in to the Phase 2 interview.

 Given the large proportion of the elderly sample that would be represented in
 the NHIS-D, and the extensive overlap in content of the NHIS-D and the SOA II,
 a decision was made to integrate the two surveys.  By the time this decision
 was made, the design and content of the Phase 1 screener questionnaire had
 already been determined and was designed to be administered to the household
 respondent.  In order to preserve as much comparability as possible in terms
 of design and content between the 1984 SOA and the SOA II, the SOA II was
 incorporated into Phase 2 of the NHIS-D, which was conducted as a followup
 interview to Phase 1 and administered to individual sample persons.

 The sample for the SOA II was drawn from the universe of individuals who
 participated in the 1994 NHIS.  Whereas the Phase 2 NHIS-D interview was
 conducted with sample members of all ages who were selected based on some
 disability criteria, the SOA II focused on all sample members 70 years of age
 and over, regardless of disability status.  Thus all individuals 70 years of
 age and over for whom data were collected as part of the 1994 NHIS Core
 interview were included in the SOA II.

 Two separate instruments were used to collect data from elderly sample persons
 at Phase 2, the DFS-2 and the DFS-3.  The DFS-2 instrument was designed to be
 administered to all adults, 18 years of age and over, who were screened into
 the Phase 2 NHIS-D as having a disability.  This included a little over half
 of the total elderly sample, or 4,928 persons.  The DFS-2 contained all of the
 questions from the DFS-3, as well as a number of additional questions focusing
 on disability status and related issues relevant to the disabled population.
 The DFS-3 was designed specifically for the SOA II, and was administered to
 the remaining 4,519 persons age 70 years and over who were not disabled as
 defined by the NHIS-D screening criteria.

 The Phase 2 interview was originally scheduled to take place approximately six
 months after the Phase 1 interview.  Thus, sample selection for the SOA II
 cohort was based on all Phase 1 sample persons who were 69 years of age and
 older at the time of Phase 1.  The intent was to insure that the SOA II
 captured those individuals who might have turned 70 years of age by the time
 of the Phase 2 interview.  Delays occurred, however, which forced Phase 2
 interviewing to occur later than expected, resulting in a lapse between
 Phase 1 and Phase 2 that ranged from 7 to 17 months.

 These delays had an important impact on the SOA II sample.  As a result of the
 Phase1/Phase 2 interval exceeding 12 months in some cases, some sample persons
 who were age 68 at the time of the Phase 1 interview had turned 70 by the time
 of the Phase 2 interview.  However, because only persons who were age 69 and
 over at Phase 1 were screened for the SOA II interview, these 68 year olds
 were missed.  As a result, the number of 70 year olds in the sample is
 slightly under represented.

 Respondent Type

 Although an attempt was made to conduct the interview with the sample person
 him/herself, proxy respondents were used when the sample person was incapable
 of completing the interview.  In some instances, the sample person required an
 assistant for either part or all of the interview.  The response rate for self
 response is 84.5 percent (78.3 percent self, entirely and 6.2 percent self,
 partially).  The proxy response rate for SOA II was 14.4 percent.  A small
 number of interviews were completed where the interviewer failed to indicate
 who responded to the interview (1.1 percent unknown response rate).

 Similarities and Differences between the 1984 SOA and SOA II

 As noted above, a major objective of the SOA II was to replicate critical
 components of the 1984 SOA in order to allow researchers to examine whether
 there have been changes in the prevalence of disability among older persons in
 the U.S.  To this end, considerable effort was made to maintain comparability
 in both the design and content of the two surveys.  The resulting similarities
 are listed below:

      1.  Both surveys were conducted as supplements to the NHIS.

      2.  The samples for both surveys were comprised of all persons 70 years of
          age and over who completed the NHIS Core interview.

      3.  Both surveys were conducted by trained interviewers from the
          U.S.Bureau of the Census.

      4.  Both surveys were conducted as in-person interviews with self-
          respondents.

      5.  The procedures for accepting and selecting proxy respondents were the
          same across surveys.

      6.  Most of the content of the SOA questionnaire was repeated in the
          SOA II; question wording was preserved.

      7.  The general ordering of sections and questions within sections was
          maintained.

 The integration of the SOA II with the NHIS-D resulted in some differences
 between the 1984 SOA and the SOA II, and these are noted below:

      1.  The 1984 SOA was conducted during the same visit as the 1984 NHIS Core;
          the SOA II was conducted in a followup visit anywhere from 7 to 17
          months after the Core interview.  As a result, the response rate for
          the SOA II is somewhat lower than that of the 1984 SOA (87.4 percent
          vs. 93.2 percent).

      2.  In addition to repeating questions from the 1984 SOA, the SOA II was
          expanded to obtain additional information.  As a result, the SOA II
          interview was considerably longer than the 1984 SOA and the SOA
          questions on functioning are interspersed in between DFS questions
          and sections.

      3.  Design characteristics of the 1984 and 1994 NHIS samples differed (5).
          For example, an enhancement of the NHIS sample design is that the 1994
          NHIS oversampled the Black population; there was no oversample of any
          subgroup in the 1984 NHIS.  In addition, beginning in 1985 there was a
          reduction in the number of PSU's sampled, there was selection of two
          PSU's per non-self-representing stratum, and the use of an all-area
          frame was employed.  Such changes to the sample design have only a
          slight impact upon the comparability of the baseline data collected in
          the respective years, however, because the correction for these changes
          is the calculation and use of weights.  The weights are a product of
          four components which take into account the complex multistage proba-
          bility design:  probability of selection, household non-response
          adjustment within segment, first-stage ratio adjustment and post-
          stratification by age-sex-race.  Thus, the use of weights allows for
          control of design changes and comparison across SOA and SOA II.


 Content of the Second Supplement on Aging Data File

 As mentioned previously, the SOA II data file contains information from several
 sources, including the 1994 NHIS Core questionnaire, the Access to Care
 Supplement, Phase 1 Disability Supplement, and the Phase 2 interview.  The
 questionnaires administered at Phase 2 (the DFS-2 and DFS-3 instruments) were
 designed to be fully comprehensive; hence, with the exception of a few
 demographic and background characteristics, all questions considered to be
 critical to the objectives of the NHIS-D and the SOA II were included in the
 Phase 2 questionnaires.  There are a number of questions from the NHIS Core
 interview and supplements that are thought to be complementary to the data
 obtained at Phase 2, however, and these measures are thus included in the SOA
 II file.  Users must always keep in mind, however, that data from the NHIS
 Core, Access to Care Supplement and Phase 1 Disability Supplement were
 collected at an earlier point in time (7 to 17 months) than data from the
 Phase 2 questionnaires and may have been provided by a respondent other than
 the sample person and other than the respondent for Phase 2.

 The SOA II questionnaire (DFS-3 instrument) contained modules on a number of
 scientifically important and policy-relevant domains.  These include:

      Assistance with activities of daily living,
      Chronic conditions and impairments,
      Family structure, relationships, and living arrangements,
      Health opinions and behaviors,
      Use of health, personal care and social services,
      Use of assistive devices and technologies,
      Health insurance,
      Housing and long-term care,
      Social activity,
      Employment history, and
      Transportation

 The structure of the file is given below:

 Recodes

 There are a limited number of recodes in the data file; usually they were
 added to summarize data from several locations. Generally, the recodes are
 located close to the variables upon which it was based.  When a recode was
 related to several non-contiguous variables, the recode was placed at the end
 of the relevant section of the data file.  An attempt was made to replicate
 all recodes from the 1984 SOA for which comparable data were obtained, in
 order to facilitate cross-survey use.

 Response rate

 The overall response for the SOA II was 87.4 percent.  This response rate was
 calculated as follows:

 Overall household response rate from Core (94.1 percent) multiplied by the 92.9
 percent of the age-eligible persons (age 70 at Phase 2) who responded to the
 SOA II, yielding an overall response rate of 87.4 percent.

 Sample Weights

 Because 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 from the NHIS data.  For the SOA II, an adjustment was
 made to the 1994 NHIS Core weight in order to account for the additional non-
 response to the SOA II.  The health data from the Core was examined before
 re-weighting to look for any evidence of bias due to differences in health
 status between SOA II respondents and non-respondents; no significant
 differences between the two groups were found.  As a result, a simple post-
 stratification adjustment was used, based on population control counts from
 July 1, 1995, which is roughly the midpoint of the Phase 2 survey period.  The
 age-sex-race categories used for post-stratification included three age groups
 (70-74, 75-79, 80+), two sex groups (male, female), and two racial designations
 (Black and non-Black).  Given this adjustment, the weights on the SOA II data
 file are different than the corresponding weights on the Core and Phase 1
 supplement data files.

 There are three fields related to weighting on the SOA II files:

 The Final Annual Basic Weight (location 201-206) will be used in most analyses
 of the SOA II File. This weight should be used with the Disability data found
 in locations 351-1826 as well as the person level variables in the beginning
 of the file.

 The Interim Basic Weight (before age-sex-race adjustment) (location 172-177)
 is required by some software packages for variance estimation for surveys with
 complex sample designs. There are a number of computer programs, such as
 SUDAAN, 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, the
 SOA II files also include the Full Sample Stratum Identifier (location. 179-
 181), the Pseudo Primary Sampling Unit (PSU) Codes (Location. 187-189), and
 the Type of PSU (Location. 185) to provide the analyst the capability of using
 such variance estimation procedures.  These variables and weights are
 necessary for directly calculating sampling variances.

 See the attachment following this cover sheet for the specific fields needed
 when using SUDAAN.

 In addition, there is a third weight field, the Chronic Condition Prevalence
 and Incidence Factor (CCPIF) (location 207-217) which is used only when the
 researcher matches the SOA II respondents to the 1994 CORE NHIS file in
 order to make prevalence estimates of chronic conditions.  On the Core NHIS,
 each household is asked about one of six lists of chronic conditions; the
 CCPIF and the final annual person weight on the SOA II are used to reinflate
 the six list subsample estimates to create a national estimate for those
 responding to the SOA II questionnaire.  Again, this Factor field has been re-
 weighted and differs from the same weight field on the NHIS core.

 Item non-response

 Three different types of item non-response are possible in the data files:
 responses of "don't know" or "refused" were assigned codes of "9", "99", or
 "999"; when a question was not answered when it should have been or the
 answer given was not possible,"Not ascertained" was assigned a code of "8",
 "98", or "998"; and when a question was legitimately skipped based on a
 response to a prior question, "NA" (not applicable) was assigned a blank for
 that variable field.

 Linkable Files

 In addition to the files mentioned above, the following NHIS data files exist
 for the 1994 sample.

 For all SOA II sample persons (as reported by a household respondent):

      Access to Health Care (complete file)

      Health Insurance

      Imputed Family Resources

      Phase 1 Disability Supplement (complete file)

 For a selected sample adult in each family:

      Year 2000 Objectives (including environmental health, tobacco, occupa-
      tional safety and health, heart disease and stroke, clinical and
      preventive services)

      AIDS Knowledge and Attitudes

 For all DFS-2 respondents:

      Disability Followback Survey

 If an analyst matches the SOA II data to the NHIS Core files or other files
 with information on the entire SOA II sample, the weights on the SOA II file
 should be used.  However, if the analyst is matching to the sample adult files
 listed above, the correct weight to use is the sample person weight found on
 the Year 2000 or the AIDS file.



 III.  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 the use of these files.  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 (1998)

 When cited in a bibliography, the citation should read:

 Method 1 - Single Stage PSU's Sampled With-Replacement within Strata Design
 for 1987-1994 NHIS.

 This method is statistically less efficient than the method described below but
 is more flexible.  This method requires no recoding of design variables, may
 be applicable to many complex survey sample design computer programs, and
 covers the 1987-1994 NHIS survey years.  Using the variables CSTRATUM, CPSU,
 and WTF, the PSU unit CPSU is treated as being sampled with replacement within
 stratum unit CSTRATUM.  The data file needs to be sorted only by CSTRATUM and
 CPSU prior to invoking SUDAAN.

 For the above simplification of the NHIS sample design structure, use the
 following SUDAAN design statements:

     PROC (procedure name) DESIGN = WR;
     NEST  CSTRATUM CPSU;


 Method 2 - Multi-stage stratified sampling design for the 1987-1994 NHIS.

 This design provides for more statistically efficient variance estimation than
 Method 1.  Method 2 makes fewer simplifications of the NHIS sample design
 structure but is only applicable to SUDAAN.  This method also requires recodes
 of the design variables and is only applicable to survey years 1987 - 1994
 NHIS person data.

 Prior to use of this method the following recoding must be done on the NHIS
 file.  This example is in SAS but other programming languages may be used.

   If (TYPE_PSU = 1 or TYPE_PSU = 4) then do;
         PSU = 1;
         POPPSU = 0;
      END;
   If (TYPE_PSU = 3 or TYPE_PSU = 6) then do;
         PSU = CPSU;
         POPPSU = -1;
      END;

 This recode creates two new variables on each record, PSU and POPPSU, for use
 by SUDAAN's NEST and TOTCNT statements.  For more information on the purpose of
 these statements refer to SUDAAN documentation.  With these additional
 variables, use the following SUDAAN code for NHIS data-sets assuming a multi-
 stage stratified sampling design.

 Before running SUDAAN against the data file, however, sort the input file by
 the NEST variables (STRATUM, PSU, SUB, and SSU).

 For SUDAAN, describe the NHIS sampling design as follows:

     PROC (procedure name) DESIGN = WOR;
     NEST   STRATUM   PSU      SUB     SSU /MISSUNIT;
     TOTCNT  POPPSU  _ZERO_  _MINUS1_  _ZERO_;

 Caution.  This method assumes that ALL records on the BASIC HEALTH AND
 DEMOGRAPHIC (BHD) or CURRENT HEALTH TOPIC (CHT) file are being used. If,
 however, you keep only selected records on a file, e.g., persons aged 65+
 (which may delete all records from one or more SSUs), care must be taken
 to preserve the integrity of the sampling design.

 All Self-Representing (SR) SSU's (TYPE_PSU = 1 or 4) listed on the FULL NHIS
 file (BHD or CHT) must have at least one representative on the data file used
 for input to SUDAAN. Moreover, all Non-Self Representing (NSR) PSU's must
 have at least one record for a person on this data file. The NEST variables
 (STRATUM, PSU, SUB, and SSU) along with the weight variable must be on each
 record of the analysis file.
