ABSTRACT

           1990 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS)
           Health Promotion and Disease Prevention (HPDP)
      Injury Control and Child Safety and Health File (ICCSH)

 1.   The 1990 Injury Control and Child Safety and Health (ICCSH)
      file contains the portions of the 1990 National Health
      Interview Survey (NHIS) of Health Promotion and Disease
      Prevention (HPDP) that were related to child health and
      safety.  It is similar to the 1985 Child Safety and Infant
      Feeding file that contains the portions of the 1985 NHIS-
      HPDP that were related to child health and safety.

 2.   The Injury Control and Child Safety and Health file consists
      of:
           a.   The NHIS person record from the Core questionnaire
                (locations 1-200)
           b.   Weight fields (locations 201-212)
           c.   Dummy record field (location 336)
           d.   Household safety information concerning poison
                control, collected from the HPDP sample person in
                households with children under age 10 (locations
                337-339).
           e.   Child-specific information on seat belt/car seat
                use and breast-feeding (locations 340-347)
           f.   Household safety information, collected from the
                HPDP sample person in all households (locations
                348-371)
           g.   Respondent's relationship to the child (location
                372)

           Note:  The household safety information was collected
           from the HPDP sample person and applies to the entire
           family.  The information in these two sections was
           copied to the records of all children in the HPDP
           sample person's family.  These data are also contained
           in the 1990 HPDP Sample Person file.

 3.   Items a-e and g, described above, were contained on the 1985
      Child Safety/Infant Feeding file.  Item f (household
      safety),  although collected from the sample person in 1985,
      was not included on the 1985 Child Safety and Infant Feeding
      file.

 4.   A record exists for every child 0-17 years of age in the
      NHIS sample.  A responsible adult in the household (usually,
      but not always, the HPDP sample person) was asked
      information about all children under 17 years of age in the
      family.  The relationship of the respondent to the child is
      entered in location 372.  Children 17 years of age could
      (but usually did not) respond for themselves (see location
      91).

      When a child was identified in the family, based on the Core
      questionnaire, but child-specific and/or injury control
      information was not obtained, a dummy record was created for
      the child.  Three types of dummy records were created:

           a.   Dummy - Household data only: No information was
                collected from the HPDP sample person for the
                household items and therefore was not available
                for the child file.

           b.   Dummy - Child specific data only: No child-
                specific information was collected but the HPDP
                (sample person) household information was
                available.

           c.   Dummy - Entire special topic portion of the HPDP:
                Neither the household safety information nor the
                child-specific data were obtained.

           Dummy records were processed with the non-dummy
           records. Codes were assigned for "unknown", "not
           ascertained", and "blank" according to the edit
           specifications established for all records.  Although
           dummy records lack some or all of the special topic
           information, they do contain all of the information
           that was obtained during the Core household interview.
           This information can be found in locations 1-200.

 5.   The response rate for the Injury Control and Child Safety
      and Health portion of the NHIS-HPDP was 82.7 percent.  This
      response rate was calculated as follows:

           Household response rate from the basic health and
           demographic questionnaire (i.e., Core) (95.5 percent)
           multiplied by the ICCSH response rate (86.6 percent)

           = 82.7 percent

      The ICCSH non-response includes children for whom no
      information was collected for any of the items on the file
      (12.1 percent) and children for whom household safety
      information was collected from the HPDP sample person but
      for whom no child-specific information was collected (1.3
      percent).  Children for whom the child-specific information
      was obtained but household HPDP safety information was
      lacking, were considered respondents for purposes of
      calculating the ICCSH response rate.

 6.   Weights:

      Weights must be used to make accurate estimates based on
      data from the National Health Interview Survey.  Two weights
      are included on the 1990 ICCSH file:

      a.   The Final Basic Weight (location 207-212), calculated
           for each child in the family, is the weight that will
           be used in most analyses of the ICCSH 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 ICCSH Final Basic Weight differs from that
           calculated for the Core data file in that the weight
           field on the Core data file is in binary format and the
           weight field on this file 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 file (loc. 201-206).

 7.   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 Basic Weight

                =    Total number of events occurring in the
                     population during the data year, i.e., 1990.

           Example: Number of bed days (loc. 100-101) x 26 x Final
           Basic Weight (loc. 207-212) = total number of bed days
           reported for the population in 1990.

      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
                Basic Weight

                =    Total number of acute incidence conditions
                     occurring in the population during 1990.

                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 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
                Basic Weight

                =    Total number of days of hospitalization
                     occurring in the population in one year.

           Note: On this file, "population" refers to all children
           age 0-17 years.

 8.   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.}

 9.   Data on hospital episodes and days, based on a 12-month
      recall are 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
      experiencing a hospital episode in the past year and the
      percent of the population having a specified number of
      hospital days.
