ABSTRACT
                1990 ASSISTIVE DEVICES PUBLIC USE DATA TAPE
                      NATIONAL HEALTH INTERVIEW SURVEY
                     NATIONAL CENTER FOR HEALTH STATISTICS
 Introduction
   Each year, the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) conducts
   the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS).  The NHIS is a personal
   interview household survey which uses a nationwide sample of the
   civilian, noninstitutionalized population of the United States.  It
   includes a "core" set of questions which remain virtually unchanged
   from year to year on a variety of socio-demographic and health-
   related items and one or more special health topics which vary
   annually.
   Among the 1990 NHIS special health topics were questions about the
   use of all kinds of assistive devices.  Individual questions were
   included about the following types of devices: a) a brace of any
   kind; b) any special equipment for getting around, such as crutches,
   a cane, a walker or a wheelchair; c) any special equipment for
   hearing problems such as a hearing aid, a special telephone, or
   other special equipment for hearing problems; d) any special
   equipment for vision problems, such as a white cane; e) an
   artificial leg, foot, arm, or hand; f) a communications aid for
   speech problems; and g) a typewriter or computer specially adapted
   for disabled persons.  Also included was a general probe question to
   elicit reporting of all other types of assistive devices not
   previously mentioned.
   Additional information obtained about the reported devices describe
   where and how often they are used, sources of payment and the health
   conditions or impairments necessitating their use.
   Other information obtained on assistive devices included:
       *need for assistive devices, kinds of devices needed and
       reasons for not having them (locations 397-414);
       *special features in the home designed for disabled persons
       and sources of payment (locations 416-464); and
       *specially equipped cars or vans (location 415).
   The 1990 Assistive Devices (AD) Public Use Tape contains data from
   these questions as well as socio-demographic and many of the health
   items obtained from the NHIS Core questionnaire.
   Every person interviewed on the 1990 NHIS Core questionnaire was
   eligible for the Assistive Device (AD) questionnaire (119,631
   persons).  Of these persons, a completed AD questionnaire was
   obtained for 117,042 persons.  The overall response rate for the
   NHIS AD questionnaire was 93.4 percent.  This response rate was
   calculated as follows:
        Household response rate from Core (95.5 percent) multiplied by
        the AD person response rate (97.8 percent) = 93.4 percent.
 Construction of the 1990 Assistive Devices Data Tape
    Data from the 1990 Assistive Devices Questionnaire have been
    organized into a single file.  This file consists of:
        *The NHIS person record from the Core questionnaire
        (locations 1-189);
        *Weight fields (locations 190-195);
        *The special topic data (locations 336-1193).
    A record exists for every person with a completed AD questionnaire
    (117,042 persons).  In location 336, persons reporting one or more
    assistive devices are coded 1; persons without devices are coded 2
    and persons for whom an AD questionnaire was completed but contained
    insufficient information to determine whether or not a device was
    used are coded 3.
    Among persons with devices (6,310 persons), the number of devices
    reported for any individual ranged from one to nine.  The actual
    number is coded in locations 337-338.  Codes to identify the type(s)
    of device(s) reported can be found in locations 340-396 as well as
    in the two-digit locations that immediately precede where details of
    those devices appear.
    Details about the individual devices are ordered sequentially.
    Device 1 is coded in location 465-466 followed by details about that
    device in locations 467-545.  Device 2 (if a second device was
    reported) is coded in location 546-547, followed by details relating
    to it in locations 548-626, and so forth.
 Weights
    The National Health Interview Survey uses a multistage sample
    designed to represent the civilian, noninstitutionalized population
    of the United States.  Therefore, weights must be used to make
    accurate estimates based on data from the NHIS.  Two weights are
    included on the 1990 AD file.
    The Final Basic Weight (location 190-195) is the weight that will be
    used in analyses of the AD data.  The Interim Basic Weight (before
    age-sex-race adjustment), required by some software packages for
    variance estimation for surveys with complex sample designs, is also
    included on the AD file (locations 172-177).
 Guidelines for citation of NCHS Public Use Data
    With the goal of mutual benefit, NCHS requests that recipients of
    data tapes cooperate in certain actions related to their use.
    Any published material derived from the data should acknowledge the
    National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) as the original source.
    The suggested citation, "Source: National Center for Health
    Statistics, National Health Interview Survey of Assistive Devices,
    1990," should appear at the bottom of all tables.  When cited in a
    bibliography, the suggested citation should read:
    National Center for Health Statistics (1992).  Public Use Tape
    Documentation, National Health Interview Survey of Assistive
    Devices, 1990 (machine readable data file and documentation).
    National Center for Health Statistics, Hyattsville, Maryland
    It should also include a disclaimer that credits any analyses,
    interpretations, or conclusions reached to the author (recipient of
    the data tape) 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.
