           1994 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS)
              Family Resources Public Use Data File
                        Income and Assets

 This tape contains edited and imputed data for the Income and
 Assets portions (part D) of the 1994 Family Resources questionnaire
 for the NHIS.  The other portions of the Family Resources
 Questionnaire or Section III from 1994 include Access to Care (part
 A), Health Care Coverage (Part B), and Private Plan and Coverage
 Detail (Part C).  The tasks of cleaning, editing, and imputing
 missing data fields were divided between the staff of the Division
 of Health Interview Statistics (DHIS) and the Survey Research
 Center (SRC) at the University of Michigan (under the direction
 of James Lepkowski).  The imputation methods designed and
 programmed by the staff at SRC are consistent with those developed
 for earlier years of the survey (1990-1992) by the Census Bureau
 and programmed by the Office of the Assistant Secretary for
 Planning and Evaluation.  Complete documentation on the imputation
 procedures is available by request from the staff of DHIS at NCHS.
 It is entitled: "Imputation for the 1994 National Health Interview
 Survey Family Resources Supplement: Documentation" by James M.
 Lepkowski.  Description of several important aspects of the file
 follow.  Data that have been modified are identified by flag fields
 (please see the flag cross-reference table at the end of this
 document).  Data users should read all preliminary notes and those
 embedded within the documentation specific to the fields of
 interest with great care.

 1.   The 1994 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) Family
      Resources data file on Income and Assets (FR) contains data
      from the income and assets supplement in which information on
      employment, income from employment and businesses, other
      income sources including retirement and social security among
      others as well as information on asset holdings including
      cars, houses, businesses, and investment properties.
      Additional information on the receipt of income from public
      programs including AFDC, SSI, and Food stamps is also
      included.  Users should be aware that all income items
      including the cumulative person and family fields(locations
      521-526 and 527-532 respectively) refer to the calendar month
      prior to the interview date.  For those interested in
      calculating yearly income generated from employment or
      businesses, the number of months per year employed or engaged
      in a business are available in the following fields: 354-355
      (item no. 2g), 373-374 (item no. 3f), 375-376 (item no. 3g),
      406-407 (item no. 4j), 408-409 (item no. 4k).

   
 2.   The 1994 FR differs from other NHIS data tapes because it
      includes imputed or "allocated" data, using a hot deck method,
      when either record for an interviewed individual or specific
      data items or amounts were missing.  The specifics of the
      data allocation were originally written by personnel of the
      U.S. Census Bureau and modified and programmed by staff of the
      SRC at the University of Michigan under cooperative agreement
      #S278-15/15.  The hot deck method essentially sorts persons
      into `like' categories using race, sex, age, family status and
      other economic and health characteristics.  The characteristics
      and categories used varies by the field being imputed.
      Completed fields from within those like categories are then
      used to "allocate" data to like records with missing data on
      the fields of interest.  Further details on the detailed
      characteristics can be acquired from the imputation
      documentation.  In addition to imputation, the income fields
      are also top-coded in a fashion similar to the procedures used
      at the Bureau of the Census to protect the confidentiality of
      the respondent.  Briefly for low frequency fields, the top 3%
      of the records were top-coded and for higher frequency fields,
      .5% of the fields were top-coded.  In both cases, the top-
      coded records were allocated to the uppermost continuous value.

      In years 1990-1992, complete record imputation for those
      missing data altogether or those with less than three items
      completed was achieved by complete record substitution from
      donor records within the appropriate group of like persons.
      In 1994, fewer cases needed complete record imputation.  The
      missing data items were imputed separately for each item.
      Records that have been imputed in their entirety can be
      identified if all field flags are equal to 1.

      Any allocated data can be identified by field-specific flags,
      which appear at the end of the record for each individual.  A
      listing of cross-referencing fields for each flag appears on
      the last page of this documentation.  Data users should be
      aware that some fields are cross-referenced between data
      items.

 3.   There was one important change between 1993 and 1994 in the
      income questionnaire that will be of interest to users.  The
      question on food stamps no longer asks the reference person to
      identify each individual person that has received food stamps
      and additional cash value of the additional stamps.

        
 4.   One major difference between the questionnaire and the data on
      the tape is the deletion of the following items: 5b; 14e,f;
      15e,f; 16 e,f.  These items were eliminated because they were
      follow-up questions for persons who did not give values for
      interest and dividend income.  The imputation process was
      used to impute values for those persons who did not report the
      income items, the first time they were asked.

 5.   One feature of the imputation process is important to users
      who are interested in using the income fields, especially for
      those using them in families.  For income items that are
      reported for more than one person per family, the respondent
      is asked to give a figure and then when asked about subsequent
      members of the family is given the option of saying that the
      income figure given previously included the income of the
      specific person.  See item 6d as an example.  The highest
      reported income for a family member is divided equally among
      all those persons for whom the already included box is
      checked.  The only exception is social security income for
      which a different algorithm is used.  Details of the method are
      available in additional documentation discussed above.

 6.   The 1994 FR is arranged in the following manner:

      a.   The NHIS person record from the core questionnaire
           (locations 1-200)
      b.   The weight fields (locations 201-236)
      c.   Work experience and current earnings (locations 336-411)
      d.   Income from other sources (locations 412-489) including
           income from public programs including welfare, SSI, SSDI,
           and the cash value of food stamps.
      e.   Asset ownership and valuation (locations 490-506)
      f.   Total edited income (locations 521-526 and 527-532)
      g.   Flag fields (locations 533-594)

 7.   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 National Health Interview Survey.  The
      primary weight to be used with this data is the Final Annual
      Basic Weight (location 219-227).

      Because the income data was collected only for the calendar
      month prior to the date of interview, adjustments by the
      analyst must be made to obtain annual data.  As noted above,
      the user can identify the number of months per year a person
      worked or had a business in the last 12 months in order to
      obtain this calculation.  The total income fields are monthly
      composites.

      One important aspect of using imputed data in the calculation
      of variances is that analysts often use the imputed data as if
      it were observed.  Thus if the actual number of cases observed
      is a and the number of values imputed is b, when imputed cases
      are treated as observed the total number of records will equal
      a+b.  The true sample size is a, however, and the variances
      will be substantially under-estimated because they will be
      calculated on a larger sample than is actually observed.  At
      present, methods for accounting for this under-estimation are
      being developed.  Analysts may consider scaling weights to
      reflect the true sample size.

 use more than one field for imputation.
