           1995 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS)
          Family Resources Public Use Imputed Data File
                        Income and Assets

 This tape contains edited and imputed data for the Income and
 Assets portions (part D) of the 1995 Family Resources questionnaire
 for the NHIS.  The other portions of the Family Resources
 Questionnaire or Section III from 1995 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 from the staff of DHIS at NCHS by request.
 It is entitled: "Imputation for the 1995 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 use great care in reading all
 preliminary notes and information embedded within the documentation
 specific to the fields of interest.

 1.   The 1995 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) Family
      Resources data file on Income and Assets (FR) contains data
      from the income and assets supplement which collected
      information on employment, income from employment and
      businesses, other income sources including retirement and
      social security, and 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 581-586 and 587-592 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: 418-419 (item no. 2g), 437-438 (item no.
      3f), 439-440 (item no. 3g), 470-471 (item no. 4j), 472-473
      (item no. 4k).



 2.   The 1995 FR differs from other NHIS data tapes because it
      includes imputed or "allocated" data (using a hot deck method)
      when either a record for an interviewed individual or a
      specific data item(s) or amount(s) was missing.  The
      specifications 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.  Fields with complete data
      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 imputation methodology 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 occurred for
      records missing all data or those with less than three items
      completed. This was achieved by complete record substitution
      from donor records within the appropriate group of like
      persons.  In 1995, 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.   As a result of the Federal government furlough, three weeks of
      data collection were omitted in December of 1995.  The weights
      have been adjusted for the smaller fourth quarter sample to
      produce national estimates.  However, there may be a minor
      seasonal effect which is not corrected by the weighting.

                                                                        
 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 important feature of the imputation process users should
      be aware of concerns 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 1995 FR file is arranged in the following manner:

      a.   The NHIS person record from the core questionnaire
           (locations 1-200)
      b.   The weight fields (locations 201-335)
      c.   Fields needed for calculating variances (locations 337-352)
      d.   Work experience and current earnings (locations 400-475)
      e.   Income from other sources (locations 476-553) including
           income from public programs including welfare, SSI, SSDI,
           and the cash value of food stamps.
      f.   Asset ownership and valuation (locations 554-570)
      g.   Total edited income (locations 581-586 and 587-592)
      h.   Flag fields (locations 593-654)

                Note: All data from the Family Resources supplement
                have been shifted to start in location 400 in order
                to accommodate a longer public use person record
                required by the new sample design in 1995.)

 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.  A set of
      weights are included on the 1995 file:

      The first weight listed below (i.e. the Final Basic Weight)
      will be used in most analyses of the Family Resources data.

      The Final Basic Weight (location 219-227) is the 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).  A national estimate of all
      person level variables can be made using this weight.

      This weight is used in conjunction with Family Resources data
      items in file locations 400-655.

      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.

      The Final Quarter Basic Weight before age-sex-race/ethnicity
      adjustment (loc. 172-177) is required by some software
      packages for variance estimation for surveys with complex
      sample designs.  This weight is also included on the file.

      As mentioned above, the sample design for the NHIS was changed
      for 1995.  Data from 1995 can be combined with data from
      previous years, however, special techniques for variance
      estimation are needed.  Consult a mathematical statistician.

      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. Analysts may consider scaling weights to reflect the
      true sample size.

      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/ethnicity adjustment(which is
      the weight prior to post-stratification), included on the
      Family Resources file is the stratum (loc. 337-340), the PSU
      (loc. 341), the substratum (loc. 342-343), the Type of PSU
      (loc. 351), and Panel 4 (loc. 352) to permit the analyst the
      capability of doing variance estimation procedures.  These
      variables and weights are necessary for directly calculating
      sampling variances.  See the attached documentation on variance
      estimation for 1995 data.

 8.   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. 219-227) = 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 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 6 months are counted.  Therefore, the
           weighted estimates must be calculated as follows:

                Number of discharges x 2 x Final Basic Weight

                =    Total number of discharges occurring in the
                     population in 1995.

 9.   Calculation of rates for events and conditions:

      The number of events or conditions estimated for the
      population, as described in item 8, 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.)

 10.  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.

 11.  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:

      Documentation, National Health Interview Survey of Family
      Resources, 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.

VARIANCE ESTIMATION FOR PERSON DATA USING THE
            
 January 21,1998

 (See Notes at end of this document for application to the Year 2000 Objectives
  data file.)

 Introduction:  The data collected in the NHIS are obtained through a complex
 sample design involving stratification, clustering, and multistage sampling,
 and the final weights are subject to several adjustments.  Any variance
 estimation methodology must involve numerous simplifying assumptions about
 the design and weighting.  We provide some oversimplified conceptual NHIS
 design structures that should allow users of this Public Use Data Set to
 compute reasonably accurate standard errors.

 There are several available software packages for analyzing complex samples.
 A comparison is beyond the scope of this document, but an Internet web page
 Summary of Survey Analysis Software currently located at
 http://www.fas.harvard.edu/~stats/survey-soft/survey-soft.html provides
 references and discussion.  At NCHS the software package SUDAAN  has been used
 to produce standard errors.  In this document SAS and SUDAAN computer code
 is provided, but without guarantees of any kind.  The computer code and
 methods are subject to change without notification to the user.  The entire
 risk as to the results and performance is assumed by the user.  NCHS
 recommends that any analysis of NHIS data be done under the supervision of a
 statistician who understands the implications of complex-sample design
 surveys.

 Conceptual NHIS design for 1995  The U.S. Bureau of the Census partitions the
 state counties or equivalents along with metropolitan areas into a universe
 of about 1900 Primary Sampling Units (PSUs) (note, PSUs may be combined
 counties) to provide the primary sampling areas for its many national
 surveys.  For the NHIS these universe PSUs are partitioned into geographical
 strata at the state level.  Some of the larger universe PSUs are self-
 representing (SR), i.e., they are in the NHIS with certainty.  The other PSUs
 are called non-self-representing (NSR) or non-certainty PSUs.  Within each
 state the NSR PSUs are partitioned into strata based upon similarity of PSU
 characteristics.  Within each NSR stratum 2 PSUs are selected using Durbin's
 probability proportional to size (PPS) sampling method using the population
 as a measure of size.  (In some smaller states only 1 PSU is drawn PPS).  The
 SR PSUs are equivalent to strata, but historically they have been referred to
 as PSUs.  (PPS and Durbin sampling are discussed in Chapter 9A of Cochran
 (1977)).

 Within a sampled NSR or SR PSU the geography is partitioned into smaller
 geographical clusters which are used to form the universe of secondary
 sampling units (SSUs).  These SSUs are then partitioned into density strata
 based upon black and Hispanic population concentration as determined by the
 1990 Decennial Census.  An additional strata for new construction since the
 last Decennial Census is also created.  Within each density stratum SSUs are
 sampled at different rates to meet different design objectives.  Within each
 sample SSU, all households containing black or Hispanic persons are sampled,
 while all other households are subsampled.  Supplemental NHIS surveys may
 require additional sampling at SSU, household, or family levels.

 The fundamental sampling weights are created such that under ideal sampling
 conditions, unbiased estimators for each level of sampling are available.
 In practice, however, the final sampling weights are adjusted for non-
 response, and ratio adjusted.  Furthermore, in 1995 a government shutdown
 resulted in three lost weeks of sample which resulted in further weighting
 adjustments.  The most important adjustment is a quarterly post-
 stratification to 90 age/sex/race/ethnicity Census control totals.

 For variance estimation purposes, NCHS treats the NHIS as a two-stage sample.
 The PSU probabilities of selection are known, and the SSUs are treated as
 sampled with replacement within PSU density strata.  Sampling weights are
 adjusted by postratification.  With these assumptions the SUDAAN software is
 used to compute variances.  Much of the design information, state, density
 strata, and Durbin probabilities can be used to identify the smaller
 geographical areas.  NCHS forbids the disclosure of information which may
 compromise the confidentiality promised to survey respondents, so some design
 information is not provided with the Public Use Data.  While all design
 information is not available to the public, variance estimation methods
 exist which provide similar results to the NCHS internally used
 methodology.  Two methods are described below.

 Design Information Available on the NHIS Public Use Databases.

 The following variables are used to produce code for variance estimation.
 Field locations below are from the PERSON level database, but may change on
 other databases; the user should check the file documentation.

 Two methods of variance estimation are provided.                                                                        -3-

 Method 1 - 187 Strata containing 2 PSUs per stratum sampled with replacement

 Here, the NHIS universe has been partitioned into 187 strata.  Most of the
 original NHIS strata and PSUs retain their original sampling structure with
 two PSUs being sampled per stratum, but a few strata have been collapsed, and
 in the largest self-representing strata, two pseudo-PSUs have been created.
 All PSUs are treated as sampled with replacement within their respective
 strata.  This method will provide somewhat conservative standard errors,
 and the standard error estimator itself has less stability than the standard
 error estimator described by Method 2 below.  Method 1 should be applicable
 to many complex survey sample design computer programs which require exactly
 2 sampled PSUs per stratum.  This method is robust when analyzing subsetted
 data (See the section "Subsetted Data Analysis" below).

 Coding required (SAS  code provided):

      STRATUM  = STRAT_V   ;

      PSU = PANEL  ;

      IF (PSU_V = 5) THEN PSU = INT((PANEL + 1)/2) ;

      IF(PSU_V = 8) THEN STRATUM  = 553  ;

      IF((TYPE_PSU = 1) AND (PSU_V IN (2,4))) THEN STRATUM =
      (STRAT_V -1) ;

      IF((STRAT_V  = 921)  AND (PSU_V  = 3)) THEN STRATUM = 901 ;

 As a check the user should observe 374 PSUs when using the full database.


 For the above simplification of the NHIS sample design structure, the
 following SUDAAN design statements may be used. (Note, the input file must
 first be sorted by STRATUM and PSU variables.)

      PROC ...  DESIGN = WR;
      NEST      STRATUM PSU ;
      WEIGHT     WTF ;

 See the Section "Worked SUDAAN Examples" below for further discussion.


 Method 2 - Multiple PSUs per Stratum design sampled with replacement

 This method provides for more statistically efficient variance estimation
 than Method 1, since it makes better use of the sampling design information.
 Its application is limited to software that can handle multiple PSUs per
 stratum, e.g., SUDAAN.  For this method the original certainty PSUs are
 partitioned by aggregations of the original race-ethnic density strata used
 in sampling.  The first randomly sampled unit is actually the SSU variable
 which is now treated as the PSU variable.  (Note, a certainty  PSU unit
 contributes nothing to the variance at the PSU sampling level.)  Non-
 certainty-strata PSUs are treated as being sampled with replacement within
 their respective strata.  Except for a few special cases, the non-certainty
 PSUs have exactly the same structure in both Methods 1 and 2.

                                                                           -4-
 Coding required, (SAS  code provided ):

 IF TYPE_PSU = 1 THEN DO ;  /* certainty strata PSUs  */

       STRATUM = STRAT_V*1000 + SUB_V ;
          PSU  = SSU  ;
          END ;

  ELSE DO ;                    /* non-certainty PSU */  ;

       STRATUM = STRAT_V ;
           PSU  =   PSU_V ;
          END ;

 As a check, the user should observe the following counts:

 Certainty Strata PSUs         4079
 Non-certainty Strata PSUs      259
 Total PSUs                    4338

 For the  Method 2 design structure, the following SUDAAN  design statements
 may be used. (Note, the input file must first be sorted by STRATUM and PSU
 variables.)

      PROC ...  DESIGN = WR;
      NEST      STRATUM PSU ;
      WEIGHT     WTF ;

 See the Section "Worked SUDAAN Examples" for further discussion.


 CAUTION.  Method 2 should only be used on a full sample person data base.
 Using this method with subsetted data may lead to incorrectly computed
 standard errors.  (See the section "Subsetted Data Analysis" below).  If
 using a subsetted data set, the user should check the degree of agreement of
 the certainty and non-certainty counts with the values presented above.

 CAUTION
 A typically used rule-of-thumb for degrees of freedom to associate with a
 standard error is the quantity (number of PSUs - number of strata).  This
 rule assumes that the PSUs are somewhat comparable in size.  For Method 2
 this rule may be grossly inaccurate since the concept of PSU is quite
 different for certainty and non-certainty strata.  Certainty strata PSUs of
 Method 2 have small weighted values relative to those of non-certainty PSUs.
 The rule-of-thumb degrees of freedom for Method 1 is 187, and Method 2 should
 have a "true" degrees of freedom exceeding that of Method 1.  However, for
 practical purposes, any degrees of freedom exceeding 120 can be treated as
 infinite, i.e., one uses a normal Z-statistic instead of a t-statistic for
 testing.  Note, that a one-tailed critical t0.025 at 120 degrees of freedom
 is 1.98 while at an infinite degrees of freedom (i.e., a z-value) is 1.96.
 If a variable of interest covers most of the NHIS PSUs, the limiting value
 would probably be adequate for analysis.  The user should consult a
 mathematical statistician for discussion of degrees of freedom.

                                                                         -5-
SUBSETTED DATA ANALYSES

 Frequently, studies of NHIS variables are restricted to select subdomains,
 e.g., persons aged 65 and older.  To save on storage the user may delete all
 records outside of the domain of interest.  This procedure of keeping only
 select records is called subsetting the data.  With a subsetted data set one
 can produce correct point estimates, e.g., the subdomain means, but standard
 errors may be computed incorrectly when using a compromised design structure.
 For example, if a stratum of Method 2 contains 10 PSUs and 5 are lost because
 of subsetting, a SUDAAN run on the subsetted data will use an incorrect
 formula to compute stratum contributions to the variance.  If the full data
 are run, SUDAAN correctly handles the 5 empty PSUs.  Note, that SUDAAN has a
 SUBPOPN option that allows the targeting of a subdomain from a full design
 data base. (See the SUDAAN manual for details).

 Subsetting methods with SUDAAN

 Strategy 1.  Use Method 1 above with the MISSUNIT option on the NEST
 statement -
         NEST        STRATUM PSU/ MISSUNIT ;
 If a WR design has exactly 2 PSUs per stratum and some PSUs are removed from
 the database then the SUDAAN MISSUNIT option performs a fix-up which produces
 a standard error identical to that achieved when using a full data set and
 SUBPOPN statement.  Note, other output like design effects, degrees of
 freedom, standardization may be computed differently.  The user is
 responsible for checking that subsetted input leads to correct results.

 Strategy 2.  Use Method 1 or 2 above on a "fixed-up" subsetted data set.
 Basically, one needs to add some dummy records containing full design
 information to the subsetted data set.  To do this follow these instructions:

 1. Create a 2-variable file containing STRATUM and PSU for each record of the
    full person file ( 100,000+ records )

 2. Sort this file by STRATUM and PSU within STRATUM.

 3. Keep only 1 record for each PSU
    add WTF = 10 -10  as a very small weight
    add variable DUMMY = 0  to designate dummy record

    A file, called DESIGN containing 4 variables with
     374 records ( Method 1 used) or with
    4338 records (Method 2 used) is created


 4. Append DESIGN to the original subsetted database, called DATASET, to form
 a new set, called DATANEW.

        Define DUMMY = 1 on the DATASET component.

      On the DESIGN component records define all variables other than STRATUM,
  PSU, WTF, DUMMY as missing "." .

 5. Sort DATANEW by STRATUM PSU

 6. In SUDAAN use a  "SUBPOPN  DUMMY = 1;" line to direct SUDAAN to restrict
 estimation to the subdomain of interest.

 With the above fix-up SUDAAN will correctly handle empty PSUs when computing
 the standard errors.  SUDAAN output that needs the entire full sample
 database for correct computation, e.g., design effects, may or may not be
 appropriate.  See the SUDAAN manual for computational forms or consult with
 a mathematical statistician for correct interpretation.

                                                                           -6-
 Other notes on Subsetting data:

 If a subsetted database under Method 2 has only a few missing PSUs, the
 subsetted database can probably be run with SUDAAN without being fixed up.
 For example, a subsetting by SEX will most likely result in all PSUs still
 being in sample, but black males aged 65 and older would result in the loss
 of many PSUs.  The impact of running SUDAAN on uncorrected subsetted data
 varies.  Frequently, subsetted runs produce results consistent with those run
 on a full data set, but sometimes they do not.

 Subsetting by aggregates of Strata does not need a fix-up.

 The condition, doctor visit, and hospital record databases are actually
 subsetted files.  To use with SUDAAN properly, the information should be
 linked back to the appropriate person on the person file.  Some statistics,
 based upon aggregation of records, may be computed directly from this file
 along with the fix-up.  Consult with a statistician for appropriate SUDAAN
 usage.


WORKED SUDAAN EXAMPLES

 In the following runs the variables used are

 LDR    = proportion of persons without a doctor visit in the last 2 years

 TDV_R  = mean number of annual doctor visits (based upon 2 week recall)

 HLT_FP = proportion of persons with self-reported fair or poor health status
          (omitting missing)

 AGE2: 1 = aged less than 18
       2 = aged 18 to 44
       3 = aged 45 to 64
       4 = aged 65 and older

 The following SUDAAN code was executed for both Method 1 and Method 2:

 Remark on Examples

 A comparison of the three SUDAAN examples shows that Method 2 performs quite
 well when compared to the "best" internal NCHS variance design for the NHIS.
 Based on limited preliminary evidence, it appears that for means, Method 2
 typically provides standard errors in close agreement with, while slightly
 larger than, the standard errors produced by the NCHS "best" method.  Method 1
 tends to provide slightly larger standard errors than Method 2 does, although
 the sample output does include examples where the Method 1 standard error is
 smaller than the Method 2 standard error.
