Aids Knowledge & Attitudes Supplement, 1995
DSN:CC37.NHIS95.AIDSKNOW
1995 NHIS AIDS Knowledge and Attitudes Public Use Data file


 1.   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.

      In the 1995 NHIS, questions on AIDS knowledge and attitudes were adminis-
      tered as a supplement to basic (core) questions for the entire year.  One
      half of the households in the 1995 NHIS core (one sample adult per family)
      were asked the AIDS supplement.  The other half of the households (one
      sample adult per family) were asked questions on the Year 2000 Objectives .

      The 1995 AIDS survey covered these topics:

      a.   Sources of AIDS information
      b.   Knowledge about the modes of HIV transmission, clinical features of
           HIV infection and AIDS, and the HIV antibody test
      c.   Perceived likelihood of transmission by casual contact
      d.   Experience with blood donation and HIV antibody testing
      e.   Content of post-test counseling
      f.   Perceived effectiveness of condoms and mutual monogamy to prevent the
           spread of HIV
      g.   Personal knowledge of someone with AIDS or HIV

 2.   This year for the first time,  the AIDS data begins in tape location 401
      (rather than in tape location 336 as in previous years).   The 1995 AIDS
      Knowledge & Attitudes file is structured in the following way:

      a.   The NHIS person record from the core questionnaire (locations 1-186)
      b.   Weight fields (locations 201-212)
      c.   Fields necessary for calculating variances (locations 337-352)
      d.   Data from supplement (locations 401-526)

 3.   The response rate to the 1995 AIDS Survey was 78.6 percent and was calcu-
      lated as follows:

      The response rate to the NHIS Core questionnaire was 93.8 percent for the
      entire year.  Of the adults eligible for the AIDS supplement, 83.8 percent
      responded.  Multiplying these two response rates together yields the
      overall response rate to the AIDS Survey (78.6 percent).


 4.   In 1995, two types of item non-response were identified:

      (1)  "No answer" (codes 8 or 98) includes blanks when there should have
           been a response or when an impossible code appeared
      (2)  Responses of "don't know" or "refused" when the question was asked
           (codes 9 and 99)

      NOTE:  When the term "unknown" is used as a label for NA or Not appli-
             cable, it includes " not ascertained", "don't know", and/or
             "refused".

 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.  Because the
      AIDS Survey included only one adult per two NHIS families, the weights on
      this tape are different from the weights for the same person on the NHIS
      Core Person tape.

      Two weights are included on the 1995 file:

      The first weight listed below (the AIDS final basic weight) will be used
      in most analysis of the AIDS data.

      The AIDS final basic weight (loc. 207-212) differs from that calculated
      for the core data file in that the AIDS sample was re-weighted to account
      for non-response and the selection of only one adult per family.  This
      weight will be used in conjunction with AIDS data items in file locations
      401-526.

      The AIDS interim basic weight before age-sex-race adjustment (loc 201-206)
      is required by some software packages for variance estimation for surveys
      with complex sample designs.

      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 AIDS interim basic weight (which is the weight prior to
      poststratification), included on the AIDS file are the strata 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. 207-212) = 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
          semi-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 six months are counted.
          Therefore, the weighted estimates must be calculated as follows:

          Number of discharges x 2 x final basic weight = Total number of dis-
          charges 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 six 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:

      National Center for Health Statistics (1997).  Data File Documentation,
      National Health Interview Survey of AIDS Knowledge & Attitudes 1995
      (machine readable data file and documentation), National Center for Health
      Statistics, Hyattsville, Maryland.

      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.
