Aids Knowledge & Attitudes Supplement, 1993
DSN: CC37.NHIS93.AIDSKNOW


1993 NHIS AIDS Knowledge and Attitudes Public Use Tape


      In the 1993 NHIS, information on AIDS knowledge and attitudes was
      collected from one randomly selected adult respondent (18 years
      and older) from each NHIS family.  The NHIS has included a
      supplement on AIDS since 1987.  While many of the items have been
      asked repeatedly in most of the supplements, there have been
      changes and analysts are encouraged to review the questionnaire
      used for this survey before undertaking any analysis.

      Analysts should also note that in 1993, the AIDS supplement was
      administered in only the third and fourth quarters of the year.
      If some of the items show a seasonal variation in responses, then
      the results for 1993 may differ from results in 1992.

      The 1993 AIDS survey covered these topics:

           1. Sources of AIDS information

           2. Perceptions of discrimination against persons with AIDS

           3. Knowledge about the modes of HIV transmission, clinical
              features of HIV infection and AIDS, and the HIV antibody
              test

           4. Perceived likelihood of transmission by casual contact

           5. Experience with blood donation and HIV antibody testing

           6. Content of post-test counseling

           7. Perceived effectiveness of condoms and mutual monogamy to
              prevent the spread of HIV

           8. Perceived risk of acquiring HIV infection

           9. Personal knowledge of someone with AIDS or HIV

           10. Use of professional mental health counseling because of
               concern about AIDS

      The response rate to the 1993 AIDS Survey was 80 percent and was
      calculated as follows:

          The response rate to the NHIS Core questionnaire in quarters
          3 and 4 was 94.7 percent.  Of the adults eligible for the
          AIDS supplement, 84.5 percent responded.  Multiplying these
          two response rates together yields the overall response rate
          to the AIDS Survey (80.0 percent).

      Each record included in the AIDS file contains a final weight
      (tape locations 201-206).  Weights must be used to make accurate
      estimates based on this data tape.   Because the AIDS Survey
      included only one adult per NHIS family, the weight on this tape
      is different from the weight for the same person on the NHIS Core
      Person tape.
