ABSTRACT

 Coverage
           An Environmental Health record exists for every person in
           the NHIS 1991 completed basic (core) interview sample,
           regardless of age.

 Topics
           Three topics were addressed in the 1991 NHIS Environmental
           Health Questionnaire- 1) exposure to household smoke, 2)
           testing for lead content of paint in homes built before 1950
           and 3) testing air in homes for Radon.  This data file
           contains data for topics 1 and 2 only.  The Radon items are
           not included as a result of a mid-year change in the NHIS'
           data collection procedures.  Information obtained about
           Radon testing is available on the 1991 Health Promotion and
           Disease Prevention Public Use Tape.

           For NHIS' 1991 Quarters 1 and 2, the NHIS household
           respondent answered the Environmental Health questions.
           This person was initially designated as the respondent for
           this section of the NHIS questionnaire since it was thought
           they would be most knowledgable about Radon and its
           presence in the home.  A review of completed NHIS
           questionnaires after data collection began however, revealed
           that household respondents rarely had heard of Radon.  Since
           this initial knowledge question subsequently screened
           respondents from answering all remaining questions about
           Radon on the questionnaire, the little information on this
           subject that was being obtained in the NHIS could not be
           used to produce national estimates under the existing
           procedure.  Therefore, in Quarters 3 and 4 the designated
           respondent for the Environmental Health questions became a
           randomly selected adult family member (i.e., the sample
           person).  This change was necessary in order to produce
           national estimates on Radon knowlege.

           Even by designating the adult sample person as the
           Environmental Health respondent in Quarters 3 and 4,
           subsequent Radon analysis is limited.  For analysis, the
           target population is those with knowledge of Radon.  With
           few sample persons with knowledge of Radon, the utility of
           data collected from these Radon questions is limited.  In
           addition, limiting these data to a 6-month data collection
           period further reduces the sample size for useful subdomain
           analysis.

 Responses

           For the Environmental Health questions, two types of item
           non- response are identified.

                (1) "Not ascertained" codes (usually code 8) include
                blanks when there should have been a response or when
                an impossible code appeared.

                (2)  "Unknown" codes (code 9) include responses of
                "don't know", or "refused" when the question was asked.

           The response rate for the 1991 Environmental Health
           questions was 92.9.  This response rate was calculated as
           follows:

                Household response rate from core (95.8 percent)
                multiplied by the Environmental Health response rate
                (97.0)

                = 92.9 percent

 Information Location

           The Environmental Health data file consists of:

                a.   The NHIS person record from the core questionnaire
                     (locations 1-200)

                b.   Weight fields (locations 201-215).

                c.   The special topic data (locations 336-340).

 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 national
           estimates based on data from the National Health Interview
           Survey. Two weights are included on the 1991 Environmental
           Health data file:

           a.   The Final Annual Basic Weight (location 207-215),
                calculated for each person in the NHIS sample, is the
                weight that will be used in most analyses of the
                Environmental Health data. This weight is the
                functional equivalent of the Annual Final Basic Weight
                found on the NHIS Person Record of the Basic Health and
                Demographic component of the survey (i.e the Core
                questionnaire).

                The  Environmental Health Final Annual Basic Weight
                differs from that calculated for the Core data tape in
                that the weight field on the core data tape is in
                binary format and the weight field on this tape is in
                character format.

           b.   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 data file (loc. 201-
                206).

           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 Interim
           Basic Weight (which is the weight prior to
           poststratification), included on the Environmental Health
           file is the full sample stratum identifier (loc. 179-181),
           the pseudo primary sampling unit (PSU) codes (loc. 187-
           189), and the 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.

 Estimating 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 Annual Basic Weight

                     =    Total number of events occurring in the
                          population during the data year, i.e. 1991.

                Example: Number of bed days (loc. 100-101) x 26 x Final
                Annual Basic Weight (loc. 207-215) = total number of bed
                days reported for the population in 1991.

           b.   The recall period for acute incidence conditions is
                also two weeks and an annual estimate of the total
                number of acute incidence conditions is calculated
                using the same procedures as for two-week events:

                     Number of acute incidence conditions x 26 x Final
                     Annual Basic Weight

                     =    Total number of acute incidence conditions
                          occurring in the population during 1991.

           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 and number of days in hospital (locations
                132-141), only discharges occurring in the past 6
                months are counted. Therefore, the weighted estimates
                for these events must be calculated as follows:

                (1)  Number of discharges x 2 (number of 6-month
                     periods in a year) x Final Annual Basic Weight

                     =    Total number of discharges occurring in the
                          population in one year.

                (2)  Number of days in hospital associated with
                     discharges occurring in the past 6 months x 2
                     (number of 6-month periods in a year) x Final
                     Annual Basic Weight

                     =    Total number of days of hospitalization
                          occurring in the population in one year.
 Calculation of Rates for Events and Conditions

           The number of events or conditions estimated for the
           population, as described in item 7 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 6 months) can be estimated but is
           generally not meaningful.}

 Hospital Data

           Data on hospital episodes and days, based on a 12-month
           recall are locations 122-131. The Final Annual 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 experiencing a hospital episode in the past year
           and the percent of the population having a specified number
           of hospital days.
