 original source.  The suggested citation to appear at the bottom of all
 tables is as follows:

       Documentation, National Health Interview Survey of Unintentional
       Injuries, 1991 (machine readable data file and documentation),

 The published material should also include a disclaimer that credits any
 analyses, interpretations, or conclusions reached to the author (recipient

 should make a reasonable effort to insure that the description is not
 inconsistent with that published by NCHS.
