                 1993 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS)
                             Public Use Data File

      1.   This tape contains the part of the 1993 National Health
           Interview Survey (NHIS) related to health insurance.  For
           this survey, information was collected from a household
           respondent about all family members who participated in the
           NHIS.  The health insurance questionnaire was administered
           in all of the NHIS sample households in the last 2 quarters
           of 1993.  The health insurance survey covered several
           different topic areas:

           a.   Type of health care coverage: Medicare, Medicaid,
                military/CHAMPUS/CHAMP-VA,other public assistance,
                Indian Health Service, private insurance.

           b.   Private insurance characteristics reported by the
                respondent: HMO status, choice of doctor, source of
                coverage, existence of employer subsidies for premiums,
                amount paid by individual/family, whether plan is
                single or general purpose, coverage for well child
                visits, mammograms.

           c.   Type of private insurance obtained by comparing
                reported plan name with precoded list of plans: fee for
                service plans, HMO type, HMO enrollment size,
                correspondence between respondent-reported HMO status
                and plan list code.

           d.   Individual coverage status.

           e.   Problems relating to coverage including denial or
                restriction of coverage, "job lock" due to insurance,
                why not covered (either currently or within past year)
                and for how long.

           f.   Out-of-pocket costs in past year (general categories).

      2.   The 1993 Health Insurance topic was administered only in the
           last half of 1993 (Quarters 3 and 4) for everyone in the
           NHIS.  Some questions either in the Health Insurance topic
           or in the core person data refer to a 2 week time period and
           some conditions, health status and health care utilization
           and coverage items are known to have seasonal variations in
           reporting.  The data on this file might not yield annual
           estimates similar to that obtained if the Health Insurance
           topic was fielded for the entire survey year, especially for
           those variables known to be subject to seasonal
           variation/reporting.

           The 1993 Health Insurance file is structured in the
           following way:

           a.   The NHIS person record from the core questionnaire
                (locations 1-335) (removing annual weight fields)

           b.   The special topic data (locations 336-490)

                Fields pertaining to various types of coverage are in
                locations 337-452.  Summary coverage status recodes
                that are not specific to single types of coverage or
                specific plans are located in locations 453-461.
                Fields pertaining to those who are known not to be
                covered are in locations 462-482.

      3.   In 1993, two types of item non-response were identified:

           (1)  "Not ascertained" (codes 8, 98, or 998) includes blanks
                when there should have been a response or when an
                impossible code appeared and;

           (2)  Responses of "don't know" or "refused" when the
                question was asked (codes 9, 99 and 999).

      4.   The overall response rate for the 1993 Health Insurance was
           88.4 percent.  This response rate was calculated as follows:

                Household response rate from core for the 3rd and 4th
                quarters (94.7 percent) multiplied by 93.3 percent who
                responded to the Health Insurance section yielding an
                overall response rate of 88.4 percent.

           Dummy records were created for those with no response to the
           entire section.

      5.   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 1993 file:

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

           The Final Basic Weight (location 210-218) is equivalent to
           the semi-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).  Because the Health
           Insurance supplement was only conducted during the third and
           fourth quarters of 1993, a national estimate of all person
           level variables can be made using this weight.

           This weight will be used in conjunction with Health
           Insurance data items in file locations 336-490.

           Interim Basic Weights (before age-sex-race adjustment) are
           required by some software packages for variance estimation
           for surveys with complex sample designs.  This weight is
           also included on the file.

           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 poststratifi-
           cation), included on the Health Insurance 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.

      6.   Estimating semi-annual numbers of events or conditions

           Note:  The data on this file might not yield annual
           estimates similar to that obtained if the Health Insurance
           topic was fielded for the entire survey year, especially for
           those variables known to be subject to seasonal
           variation/reporting.

           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 13 (number of two-week
                     periods in a half year) x Final Basic Weight

                     =    Total number of events occurring in the
                          population during the semi-annual period,
                          i.e. 1993.


                Example:  Number of bed days (loc. 100-101) x 13 x
                Final Basic Weight (loc. 210-218) = total number of bed
                days reported for the population in 1993.

           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 semi-annual period.

                     Number of acute incidence conditions x 13 x Final
                     Basic Weight

                     =    Total number of acute incidence conditions
                          occurring in the population during the last
                          half of 1993.

                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 Final Basic Weight

                     =    Total number of discharges occurring in the
                          population in the last half of 1993.

      7.   Calculation of rates for events and conditions:

           The number of events or conditions estimated for the
           population, as described in item 6, 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.}

      8.   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 semi annual period experiencing a hospital episode
           in the past year and the percent of that population having a
           specified number of hospital days.

      9.   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 (1993)

           When cited in a bibliography, the suggested citation should
           read:

APPENDIX A

 Definitions:

 Group HMO:    An HMO that contracts with one independent group practice to
               provide health services.

 Staff HMO:    An HMO that delivers health services through a physician group
               that is controlled by the HMO Unit.

 IPA:          An HMO that contracts directly with physicians in independent
               practices; and/or contracts with one or more associations of
               physicians in independent practice; and/or contracts with one or
               more multispecialty group practices (but the plan is
               predominantly organized around solo/single practices).

 Network:      An HMO that contracts with two or more independent group
               practices, possibly including a staff group, to provide health
               services.  Although a network may contain a few solo practices,
               it is predominantly organized around groups.

 Mixed:        Any HMO combining a group, staff, or network model and an IPA
               model.  The HMO includes both group and solo practices.
