 Background Information on the Disability Supplement to the NHIS, 1994-1995

 In the United States there are an estimated 35-43 million people with physical
 and mental disabilities.  The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which was
 signed into law in July, 1990, is one of the catalysts prompting legal and
 policy reforms in the area of disability.  However, policy-relevant data on
 disability needed to understand its many aspects and impacts is either very
 limited or nonexistent, particularly on a national level.

 In an effort to meet some of these data needs, four federal offices (Office of
 the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation, Health and Human Services;
 Office of Supplemental Security Income, Social Security Administration (SSA);
 Office of Disability, SSA; Bureau of Maternal and Child Health, Health
 Resources Administration) planned several national surveys about various
 aspects of disability in the early 1990's.

 Since many of their interests overlapped, these agencies decided to merge their
 efforts into developing one survey to be included with the National Health
 Interview Survey (NHIS) for two consecutive years.  As plans for this survey
 evolved, other organizations with an interest in disability participated
 including:

      Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health, DHHS
      Administration on Developmental Disabilities, DHHS
      Administration on Aging, DHHS
      Disability Prevention Program, CDC
      National Center for Medical Rehabilitation Research, NICHD
      Center for Mental Health Services, SAMHSA
      Rehabilitation Services Administration, Dept. of Education
      National Institute for Disability and Rehabilitation Research,
        Dept. of Education
      Office of Research and Demonstrations, Health Care Financing
        Administration
      Office of Research and Statistics, SSA
      Bureau of Transportation Statistics, DoT
      Robert Wood Johnson Foundation


 Survey Goals and Objectives

 One important goal of the NHIS Disability Survey (NHIS-D) was to develop a
 series of questionnaires that would provide a useful set of measures while
 maintaining a balance between the social, administrative, and medical
 considerations involved in disability measurement.  The NHIS-D was not limited
 to one definition of disability; therefore, it allows analysts from varying
 programs to combine data items in different ways to meet specific agency or
 program needs.  It is designed to collect data that can be used to understand
 disability, to develop public health policy, to produce simple prevalence
 estimates of selected health conditions, and to provide descriptive baseline
 statistics on the effects of disabilities.  The second phase questionnaires
 provide greater detail on the use of services, problems, and barriers
 encountered by the respondents.


 Questionnaire Development and Data Collection Methods

 Given such broad objectives for the NHIS-D, it was apparent very early in the
 planning process that it would be impossible to collect all of the data needed
 about disability in one interview.  Thus, it was decided to use a two phase
 data collection plan with a series of disability questionnaires.

 Development of these questionnaires involved extensive input from federal
 agencies as well as consultants from the research community.  Drafts of the
 questionnaires were reviewed by an outside panel of experts from the academic
 and private research community.  Questionnaires were  also tested extensively
 in the NCHS Questionnaire Design Research Laboratory and in field tests.

 NHIS-D Phase I:   The Phase I Disability questionnaire was administered at the
 same time as the NHIS Core, and collected information about all members of the
 NHIS households.  For more information about the NHIS Core, please refer to the
 two publications cited at the end of this document (1,2).  As with the NHIS
 Core, the NHIS-D Phase I questions were answered by any available adult in the
 household who was knowledgeable about the health of other household members.
 The Phase I questionnaire collected basic data on disability and was used as a
 screening device to determine eligibility for the second phase of the survey.
 Because of the low frequency of occurrence of disabilities within the non-
 institutionalized civilian population, Phase I of the NHIS-D was fielded over
 a two year period from 1994 through 1995.  The sample size in 1994 for Phase I,
 for persons of all ages, was 107,469 persons.  The data from Phase I is
 contained in separate data files for 1994 and for 1995 and is not included in
 this file.

 NHIS-D Phase II:  Eligibility for the second phase of the NHIS-D for adults
 and children (termed the "Disability Followback Survey or DFS") was originally
 based not only on responses to the Phase I questionnaire, but also on responses
 to other parts of the NHIS on activity limitation and receipt of disability
 benefits.  The specific inclusion criteria for Phase II for adults are
 summarized in a table at the end of this document.  These sample selection
 criteria were applied to the unedited data from Phase I.  However, because very
 few adults (26) were eligible for (and completed) Phase II based only on their
 core data, ultimately only persons completing the Phase I questionnaire were
 included in the adult DFS data file.  Interviewing for the two years of Phase
 II began in August 1994 and was completed in 1997. This file contains only the
 data for adults interviewed in 1994 and eligible on the basis of their responses
 to the Phase I questionnaire.  The data for those adults followed up and
 interviewed on the basis of their 1995 Phase I questionnaire are found in a
 separate data file.

 Altogether, there were 4 DFS questionnaires: one for children, one for adults,
 one for elderly persons (69 years of age and older) without any indication of
 disability (also called the Supplement on Aging or SOA), and one for persons
 with a past history of Polio.  As stated above, only the data from the 1994 DFS
 for adults is included in this file.

 Since disabilities increase with age, detailed information on older persons,
 even those currently not experiencing any type of disability, is needed for
 planning purposes.  The SOA questionnaire included a number of items identical
 or similar to those on the Adult DFS questionnaire since many of the topics
 are very relevant to the elderly population.  This data is available from NCHS
 in the 1994 SOA II file.

 The Polio Questionnaire collected additional information about the symptoms and
 impact of the illness at the time of initial diagnosis of polio and at various
 times after the diagnosis.  Information on current health problems was also
 obtained.  Whenever possible, self response by the polio survivor was required
 for this component.

 Health Interview Survey on Disability" written by Gloria Simpson, David Keer,
 and Marcie Cynamon of the National Center for Health Statistics)


 PHASE II ADULT (or DFS) QUESTIONNAIRE

 For adults, the DFS questionnaire obtained more extensive information about the
 persons with disabilities on issues such as employment, use of services and
 benefits, transportation and personal assistance needs, housing characteristics,
 environmental barriers, and participation in social activities.  The respondent
 for the Adult DFS questionnaire was the individual identified from the Phase I
 interview whenever possible.


 SECTIONS OF THE ADULT DFS QUESTIONNAIRE

 Section A: Housing and Long-term Care Services

 Some persons with health problems need to live in special facilities while
 others are able to live in adapted or modified homes in the community.  This
 section contains questions about the respondent's physical surroundings,
 including barriers, modifications, and special features, both necessary and
 unnecessary.  This section also includes questions on the type of dwelling
 place and services provided by living facilities other than private, non-
 retirement residences.  Other questions address nursing home stays and costs,
 as well as stays in convalescent, board and care, assisted living or other
 long-term care home, and facilities for those with a mental illness or mental
 retardation.

 Section B: Transportation

 Lack of accessible transportation may be a serious problem for many people with
 disabilities.  This section contains questions on the use of cars and other
 motor vehicles and any special equipment needed for these vehicles.  It also
 has questions on the use of public transportation and special transportation
 services, as well as the frequency of travel in the previous week on a variety
 of forms of local transportation and, in the previous six months on planes,
 long distance buses, trains, and boats.

 Section C: Social Activity

 This section contains question on the frequency of various social activities
 and contacts such as getting together or talking with friends and relatives and
 going to events outside the home.


 Section D: Work History/Employment

 Employment history, accessibility, the need/presence of special aids, and
 facilities at work are of special interest to the economic well-being of those
 persons with disabilities.  The skip patterns in this section are extremely
 complex as a result of the differing work circumstances of the respondents.
 Because of the complexity, a few respondents have no detailed information in
 this section, other than whether or not they worked; these persons are
 identified in location 902.  A table indicating the flow pattern or sequence
 of the questions is included as an appendix to this cover sheet.  Section D
 includes sets of parallel questions (to the extent appropriate) for those who
 (1) have never worked, (2) are currently working, or (3) have worked in the
 past, according to their work status group.  The layout of this section has
 been left in the same order as in the original questionnaire which means that
 the same questions often appear in several places; which set of questions was
 asked depends on which of 16 "work status" groups the individual belongs to.
 A table that tracks specific questions, identifies which of the 16 groups were
 asked that question,  and the corresponding field location is also included as
 an appendix to this cover sheet.  When there are relatively minor question
 changes such as verb tense, the question versions are labelled A and B and
 listed consecutively in the table.

 In addition to asking directly about the level of a person's ability to work,
 this section contains questions on necessary accomodations, special equipment/
 features that may be needed in order to work, actual and perceived barriers to
 working, and perceived discrimination.  For those working, the number of hours
 usually worked per week is obtained, as well as their usual mode of transpor-
 tation to work.  All those who have worked are asked about whether they were
 restricted in changing their work circumstances by their health problem(s).
 Those who are no longer working are asked about the circumstances of stopping
 work and whether they would like to or could return to work, and if so, what
 accomodations, equipment, etc. they would need.  All persons are asked about
 whether they were involved in volunteer work in the past year.

 Section E: Vocational Rehabilitation

 This section contains questions on receipt of various types of rehabilitative
 services, provision by the state rehabilitation agency, and a description of
 the individual's current employment or other occupational circumstances, such
 as school, day activity center, job training, etc.

 Section F: Assistive Devices and Technologies

 This section contains a detailed set of questions about the existence and use
 of a wide variety of medical devices, supplies, and implants.

 Section G: Health Insurance

 Health insurance coverage is a particularly important issue for those with
 chronic conditions and impairments.  This set of questions, a condensed version
 of the usual NHIS health insurance questions, is specific to the time the DFS
 questions were asked.  The answer may vary from the answers given to the
 insurance questions at the time of NHIS core interview.


 Section H: Assistance with Key Activities

 One dimension of measuring ability or disability in individuals is the degree of
 difficulty in performing "functional" activities such as the ability to walk
 distances, sit or stand for 2 hours, stoop, reach out, carry loads, etc. in
 addition to more standard questions about the ability to perform activities of
 daily living (ADLs) and instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs).  This
 section contains questions on these key activities, how long they have been a
 problem, and the degree of difficulty.  Questions on ADLs and IADLs include
 whether the individual requires any help, the degree and type of help, needs
 more help, or has equipment (ADLs only).  For those reporting difficulty with
 an ADL or IADL activity, the general condition(s) causing the problem is
 obtained.  There are also questions about urinary and bowel continence, falls
 in the previous year, and the presence of bedsores or contractures.

 If a person has received help or supervision, there are questions about the
 helper, the activities they helped with, what the relationship is of the
 helper (eg. relative, friend, volunteer, employee, etc.), the source of payment
 if paid helper, the frequency of use, and the degree of satisfaction with the
 "main" helper.  There are also a few questions about staying alone for a short
 period and the availability of help for longer periods of time.  If the
 respondent indicated a need for more help, there are questions about why the
 reasons help is not available.

 There are also questions about problems that may have occurred because the
 respondent was home alone and whether a family member had to alter their
 employment in some fashion because of the respondent's health.

 Section I: Other Services

 There are a variety of other medically oriented services and problems that may
 affect all persons, but particularly those with functional impairments and other
 disabilities.  This section contains questions about medical treatments received
 at home, prescription medicines and problems that arise in conjunction with
 them, sources of medical care, frequency and types of practitioners seen,
 referrals, and satisfaction with the doctor most frequently seen.  In addition,
 questions are included about a series of non-physician medical services
 received in the past year, the cost of these services, as well as whether the
 respondent was on a waiting list for these services.  Services included are:
 physical, occupational, speech, recreational, and respiratory therapists,
 audiologist, visiting nurse, personal care attendant, reader or interpreter,
 adult day care, alcohol or drug abuse, center for independent living, social
 work, and transportation.  Included are detailed questions about the nature of
 services received from a Center for Independent Living and from adult day care
 activities.

 There are questions about admissions to facilities overnight, outpatient
 services for mental health care, and the associated costs.

 And finally, there are questions about coordination of care, including who
 provides the coordination and what services are coordinated.

 Section J: Self Direction

 This section contains questions on who gives medical consent for the
 individual.  If 18 to 20 years of age, there are questions about having an
 Individual Educational Plan or Individual Written Rehabilitation Plan,
 services received through special education including job related education,
 whether additional services are needed, and satisfaction with services
 received.

 Section K:  Family Structure, Relationships, and Living Arrangements

 Marital status and social support are generally considered to be related to
 health status and risk of institutionalized.  This section contains questions
 on current marital status, the length of the current marital status, the
 number of people living in the household, and their relationship to the
 respondent.  Questions are also asked about the number of living sons,
 daughters, and the amount of contact there is.  If living with persons other
 than a spouse, the reason for the arrangement (financial or the respondent's
 health problems) is ascertained.  In addition, the vital status of parents, the
 number of living siblings, and the frequency of contact with non-resident
 family members is asked.

 Sections L (Conditions and Impairments), Section M (Health Opinions and
 Behaviors), and Section N (Community Services) are sections only asked of those
 70 years of age and older in conjunction with the Supplement on Aging (SOA II)
 and therefore are not included in this data file.  They are included in the
 SOA II file.

 Section O only includes confidential information not available on any file.

 Section P: Proxy Status

 This section identifies anyone who assisted the respondent in replying to this
 questionnaire or who was a proxy, answering the entire questionnaire on behalf
 of the respondent, and the relationship of the assistant or the proxy to the
 respondent.

 Recodes

 There are a limited number of recodes in these files; usually they were added
 to summarize data in 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.

 Response rate

 For the 1994 NHIS the Household response rate from core was 94.1%;  the
 response rate for Disability Phase 1 was 92.5%; and the response rate for the
 DFS-Adult was 91.7%.  The overall estimated response rate can be calculated
 two ways. One method is to multiply all three response rates including the
 original NHIS core sample and Phase 1 which were administered to all persons,
 as well as the DFS-Adult which was only administered to a subset of respondents
 to Phase 1.  This method yields a response rate of 79.8%.  The second method
 is based on the responses to Phase 1 which determined the eligibility criteria
 for DFS-Adult, as well as the respondents to DFS-Adult.  This rate was
 calculated by multiplying the response rate to Phase 1 (92.5) by the response
 rate to DFS-Adult (91.7) yielding a rate of 84.8%.

 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.  The weighting for the core NHIS in 1994
 differs from that of 1995 because of the changes in the sample design in 1995.
 For the DFS-Adult, a revised set of weights were calculated to adjust for the
 additional non-response between Disability Phase 1 and DFS-Adult.  The
 re-weighting process was similar to the non-response adjustment for the 1994
 NHIS Core data and used the age-sex-race categories.  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 NHIS-D respondents and non-respondents;
 no significant differences between the two groups were found.  Because of this
 re-weighting, the corresponding weights on the DFS-Adult, Disability Phase I,
 and Core data files all differ.

 There are two fields related to weighting on the DFS-Adult files:

 The Final Annual Basic Weight (location 201-206) will be used in most analyses.
 This weight should be used with the DFS-Adult data found in locations 411-3418
 and with the person level variables in the beginning of the file.

 The Final Quarter Basic Weight before age-sex-race adjustment (loc. 172-177)
 is identical to the weight from the Core NHIS.  This weight is required by some
 software packages for variance estimation for surveys with complex sample
 designs.  The weight was adjusted for non-response twice (Phase 1 and DFS-Adult)
 to create the Final Annual Basic Weight mentioned above.  If an annualized
 version of this quarter weight is needed, divide the value in this field by 4.


 As mentioned above, the sample design for the NHIS was changed for 1995.
 Disability data from 1994 can be combined with the data from 1995, however,
 variances for the two years must be calculated separately.

 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 Final
 Quarter Basic Weight before age-sex-race adjustment (which is the weight prior
 to post-stratification), included on the DFS-Adult file are the full sample
 stratum identifier (loc. 179-181), the Pseudo PSU codes (loc. 187-189), the
 type of substratum (loc. 178), the secondary sampling unit- a concatenation of
 processing quarter, random recode of PSU number, week-Census Code, and segment
 number (loc. 5-12), 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.

 To reduce respondent error, the recall period for questions about some events
 is limited to two weeks.  These events are bed 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 Annual Basic Weight

           = Total number of events occurring in the population
           during 1994.

      Example: Number of bed days (Location. 100-101) x 26 x Final Annual Basic
      Weight (Location. 207-212) = total number of bed days reported for the
      population in 1994.

 The recall period for information on hospitalizations is 12 months.  However,
 in calculating the 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 Annual Basic Weight
           = Total number of discharges occurring in the population in 1994

 Item non-response

 Two 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").
