ABSTRACT

           1990 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS)
         of Health Promotion and Disease Prevention (HPDP)
                    Pregnancy and Smoking File

INTRODUCTION

 1.   The 1990 Pregnancy and Smoking file is very similar to the
      1985 Pregnancy and Smoking file; most items are identical.

 2.   A record exists for every woman 18-44 years of age in the
      NHIS sample.  For women who were not interviewed, dummy
      records were created.  Smoking questions were asked only of
      women who had had a live-born child in the past 5 years or
      were currently pregnant.  All women who did not meet these
      criteria, as well as women for whom we had no information
      (dummy records), have blanks in all supplement fields
      beginning in location 343 (Question 4 - Ever smoked 100
      cigarettes).

 3.   The Pregnancy and Smoking file consists of:
           a.   The NHIS person record from the core questionnaire
                (locations 1-200)
           b.   Weight fields (locations 201-212)
           c.   The special topic data (locations 336-400)

 4.   The response rate for the Pregnancy and Smoking portion of
      the NHIS of Health Promotion and Disease Prevention was 89.6
      percent.  This response rate was calculated as follows:

           Household response rate from core (95.5 percent)
           multiplied by the Supplement response rate (93.8
           percent)

           = 89.6 percent

 5.   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 Pregnancy and Smoking file:

      a.   The Final Basic Weight (location 207-212), calculated
           for each woman 18-44 years of age in the family, is the
           weight that will be used in most analyses of the
           Pregnancy and Smoking 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 Pregnancy and Smoking 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).

 6.   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 women
           18-44 years of age.

 7.   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.}

 8.   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.
