                  1995 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS)
                      Health Insurance Public Use Data File

 1.   The 1995 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) Health Insurance data
      file contains a variety of data items addressing health insurance. These
      data items are essentially the same as in other recent years with a few
      exceptions.  The differences are:

           A) The question about seeing a current Medicaid card has been
              deleted
           B) Medicare recipients in selected states (Arizona, California,
              Florida, Hawaii, Minnesota, New York, Oregon, and Texas) were
              asked about "Medicare Managed Care plans"
           C) Medicaid recipients in selected states (Arizona, California,
              Florida, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Oregon, and Tennessee)
              were asked about managed Medicaid care
           D) For those with private general purpose health care plans,
              coverage of dental care was ascertained instead of coverage
              for mammograms.

      As a result of the Federal government furlough, three weeks of data
      collection were omitted in December of 1995. The weights have been
      adjusted for the smaller fourth quarter sample to produce national
      estimates. However, there may be a minor seasonal effect which is not
      corrected by the weighting.

 2.   The 1995 Health Insurance supplement was administered in all of the NHIS
      sample households for the full year with the exception of the last 3 weeks
      in December as mentioned above. Information was collected from a household
      respondent about all family members who participated in the NHIS.

      The 1995 Health Insurance file is structured in the following way:

      a.   The NHIS person record from the core questionnaire (locations 1-200)
      b.   The weight fields (locations 201-335)
      c.   Fields needed for calculating variances (locations 336-350)
      d.   Data from supplement (locations 401-560)

      Note: All data from the Health Insurance supplement have been shifted to
      start in location 401 in order to accommodate a longer public use person
      record required by the new sample design in 1995.

 3.   In 1995, 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 1995 Health Insurance was 85.8 percent.
     This response rate was calculated as follows:

           Household response rate from core of 93.8 percent multiplied by 91.5
           percent who responded to the Health insurance section yields an
           overall response rate of 85.8 percent.

      Dummy records were created for those with no response to the entire
      section (see file location 401).

 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 1995 file:

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

      The Final Basic Weight - Annual (location 219-227) is the 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). 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 401-560.

      The Final Quarter Basic Weight before age-sex-race/ethnicity adjustment
      (loc. 172-177) is required by some software packages for variance
      estimation for surveys with complex sample designs.  This weight is also
      included on the file.

      As mentioned above, the sample design for the NHIS was changed for 1995.
      Data from 1995 can be combined with data from previous years, however,
      variances for 1995 must be calculated separately from variances of
      previous years.

      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 Final Quarter Basic Weight before age-sex-race/ethnicity
      adjustment(which is the weight prior to post-stratification), included on
      the file is the stratum for variance estimation (loc. 337-340), the
      PSU for variance estimation (loc. 341), the substratum for variance
      estimation (loc. 342-343), and the type of PSU (loc. 351) 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 annual 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 annual period, i.e. 1995.

           Example:  Number of bed days (Loc. 100-101) x 26 x Final Basic
           Weight (Loc. 219-227) = total number of bed days reported for the
           population in 1995.

      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 annual period.

                Number of acute incidence conditions x 26 x Final Basic Weight

                =    Total number of acute incidence conditions occurring in
                     the population during 1995.

           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 2 x Final Basic Weight

                =    Total number of discharges occurring in the population
                     in 1995.

 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 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 (1995)

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

      National Center for Health Statistics (1997).  Data File Documentation,
      National Health Interview Survey of Health Insurance, 1995 (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.

   *The coverage status recode is based on responses to Questions 1-7 and the
    private health insurance plans referred to in Question 8.  In addition, 63
    people reported "covered by other plan" as a reason for having no insurance
    (Loc. 535=1); in location 541, 52 of these persons gave a general indication
    of the type of plan but not enough detail to alter their general coverage
    status to "covered".  If someone is not known to be covered by any of these
    sources (Questions 1-7) but did not respond to Question 12, they were given
    a "3" code.  This code includes all nonrespondents.

 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 predomi-
                nantly 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:         A managed care plan combining more than one type of delivery
                with no one type predominant (over 70%).

 PPO:           PPO's are a form of managed care although not a "traditional"
                HMO.  Enrollees in PPOs are encouraged to use designated or
                "preferred" health providers.  Financial incentives for
                individuals to use preferred providers include lower copayments
                or coinsurance and maximum limits on out-of-pocket costs for in-
                network use.  PPOs are less restrictive than HMOs in that visits
                to specialists are not dependent on the authorization by a
                member's primary care physician.  Unlike HMOs, out-of-network
                usage is allowed by PPOs, though at a higher cost to enrollees.

                Managed Care and Review Association Foundation, Washington, DC).
