 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 (1992)

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

       National Center for Health Statistics (1994).  Public Use File
       Documentation, National Health Interview Survey of Health Insurance,
       1992 (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.

               1992 NHIS Health Insurance Public Use Data Tape

      This tape contains the part of the 1992 National Health Interview
      Survey 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.  The health insurance survey covered several
      different topic areas:

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

      2.   Private insurance characteristics reported by the
           respondent: HMO status, choice of doctor, source of
           coverage, existence of employer subsidies for premiums.

      3.   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.

      4.   Individual coverage status.

      The response rate to the health insurance survey was 91.6 percent
      and was calculated as follows:

           The response rate to the NHIS Core questionnaire was 95.7
           percent.  Of respondents to the Core, 95.7 percent responded
           to the health insurance questionnaire.  Multiplying these
           two response rates together yields the overall response rate
           to the health insurance section (91.6 percent).

      Dummy records were created for non-respondents to the health
      insurance questionnaire (see tape location 336).  These dummy
      records were assigned "not ascertained" codes as appropriate.

      Each record included on this health insurance tape contains final
      basic weights (tape locations 201-227), the chronic condition
      factor (tape locations 190-200), the 6.5 weight (tape locations
      228-236), and estimated data fields (tape locations 237-335).
      Weights must be used to make accurate estimates based on this
      data tape.  The weights on this tape are the same as the weights
      for the same individuals on the NHIS Core Person tape.

                        (Continued)

 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.
