Immunization, 1995
  DSN:  CC37.NHIS95.IMMUNIZE



                   1995 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS)
                           Childhood Immunization File


 In the 1995 NHIS, information on childhood immunizations was collected from
 adult respondents (often the mother) for a sample child under 6 years of age
 in the NHIS household sample with age-eligible children.  Information was also
 collected for all additional 19-35 month old children.  Analysts are STRONGLY
 encouraged to review the questionnaire used for this survey before undertaking
 any analyses.

 Five vaccine types were asked about in the survey: DTP, Polio, Measles or MMR,
 Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib), and Hepatitis B.  When possible, informa-
 tion was abstracted directly from vaccination records maintained by the
 family.  Respondents with vaccination records were also asked about additional
 shots that may have been received but were not listed on the records.
 Respondents who were unable to provide records were asked the number of shots
 of each type their child had received.  Respondents who did not know the exact
 number of shots but stated that the child had received "all" of a particular
 type of vaccination had "88" coded as the number of shots.

 For each vaccine type, the total number of shots received was calculated and
 included as a recode for each child in the file.  For children 2 years and
 older who had complete shot record information (i.e., all their vaccination
 information was contained on their shot record), the total number received by
 24 months was also calculated and included on the file as a recode.

 Estimation of immunization coverage levels (i.e., the percentage of children
 who are "up-to-date" for a particular vaccine type or a series of vaccines) is
 complicated.  The National Immunization Program at the Centers for Disease
 Control and Prevention is responsible for calculating the official Public
 Health Service coverage level estimates.  Analysts who wish to make these
 types of estimates can contact the National Immunization Program's Statistical
 Analysis Branch (404-639-8235) for technical assistance.

 Information collected in this survey is the same as that collected in the
 1992-94 NHIS.  Similar information was also collected in the 1991 NHIS as part
 of a supplement on child health.  However, there are some differences in the
 way the information based on respondent's recall was collected in 1992-95
 compared with 1991.  In 1991, the ages of vaccination were collected for each
 antigen; in 1992-95, just the total number of shots of each type was col-
 lected.  The recode for shots received before 24 months was calculated for all
 children 2 and older in 1991; in 1992-95, since data on ages at vaccination
 was not collected in the history portion, this recode could only be calculated
 for those children with complete shot record information.

 The response rate to the 1995 Immunization Survey was 86.5 percent and was
 calculated as follows:

      The response rate to the NHIS Core questionnaire was 93.8 percent.
      Of the eligible families from the CORE, 92.2 percent responded to
      the Immunization supplement.  Multiplying these two response rates
      together yields the overall response rate to the Immunization
      Survey (86.5 percent).

 Each respondent record in the Immunization file contains a final weight (file
 locations 207-212).  Weights must be used to make estimates based on this data
 file that take into account the sample design.  For several reasons the
 sampling weight on this file differs from the corresponding weight for the
 same child on the NHIS Core Person file.  The Immunization file is based on a
 sample of children under 6 identified in the NHIS sample.  In addition, there
 was a nonresponse to the request for immunization information.  Therefore,
 respondent data on the Immunization file was reweighted, including a post-
 stratification adjustment to independent estimates of the population by
 race/ethnicity, sex, and individual years of age.

 It is important to note that these weights must be used with all records
 (sample children and additional children) since the weights take into account
 the additional sampling of children 19-35 months old children.  Most of the
 sampling weights for records on the Immunization file are between 1000 and
 6000.  However, due to the design of the NHIS and the weighting procedure,
 there may be some records on the Immunization file which have very large
 weights (e.g., 25,000).  Analyses based on small raw sample sizes may be
 heavily influenced by the inclusion of these records with larger weights.
 Analysts are encouraged to look at the distribution of weights for records
 being analyzed to decide how to handle these weighting outliers.

 The following indicates the number of sample children as well as additional
 children in the household:

                   1995 NHIS Immunization File

                 Sample Children:         6,732
                 Other Children:            555
                 Total Children:          7,287

                 19-35 months (total)     2,089

 NOTE: The NHIS sample was redesigned starting in 1995.  Therefore, analysts
 are encouraged to carefully review the 1995 file documentation, as there are
 several new or modified fields identifying design information.
