ABSTRACT



                       NATIONAL HEALTH INTERVIEW SURVEY (NHIS)
                       1992 Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS)
                                Public Use Data File


 1.  The Youth Risk Behavior Survey

     The Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS), was conducted as a followback to
     the National Center for Health Statistics' 1992 National Health Interview
     Survey.  The YRBS was sponsored by the Division of Adolescent and School
     Health, National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion
     This survey is one piece of a larger system of research, the Youth Risk
     Surveillance System, that was developed to monitor the major risk behaviors
     of American youth.  Data collection began in April of 1992 and continued
     through March 1993.  All YRBS sample youth were contacted in person and
     responded for themselves.  Information was obtained by the use of a
     cassette tape recorder and tape containing the previously recorded YRBS
     questions.  Sample youth listened to the taped interview and recorded their
     responses on answer sheets, which upon completion they returned to the
     interviewers in sealed envelopes.  This methodology was developed through a
     collaborative effort between the National Center for Health Statistics and
     the University of Michigan's Survey Research Center.  In addition to
     providing youth with the maximum amount of privacy and confidentiality for
     their responses, this methodology also benefitted youth with poor reading
     and/or writing skills.

 2.  The YRBS Sample

     The sample of children 12 to 21 years of age was drawn from families who
     were interviewed for the 1992 National Health Interview Survey.  Within
     each family, one child who was attending school and up to two children
     not in school or whose in-school status was unknown were selected for the
     YRBS sample.  Of the 13,789 sample youth identified in this manner, YRBS
     interviews were completed for 10,645 of them, for a final response rate of
     77.2 percent.

 3.  The YRBS Data File

     A YRBS record exists for every sample youth who completed the YRBS
     interview.  Initially, dummy records were created for all YRBS non-
     respondents.  Comparison of sociodemographic characteristics of respondents
     and non-respondents indicated that the two groups were not sufficiently
     different to warrant retaining dummy records in the YRBS file.

     The YRBS survey was conducted approximately two months after the original
     NHIS interview.  Consequently, the age of some sample youth who were 12 to
     21 years old at the time of the original NHIS interview changed for the
     YRBS.  In fact, the YRBS includes 232 youth 22 years of age.  Since these
     'older' youth were part of the original YRBS sample frame, their records
     were retained on the YRBS data file.  These records should not be deleted
     when using this data file to produce national estimates since the weights
     for deriving these estimates were constructed using the entire YRBS data
     file.  Furthermore, it is also recommended that when analyzing these data
     by age, the sample youth's age at the time of the original NHIS is used
     (loc. 27-28, or age recodes in loc. 29-32) rather than the sample youth's
     age at the time of the YRBS (loc. 423-424).

     The YRBS questionnaire focused on selected types of health behaviors
     among youth that could lead to a greater risk for disease and accidents.
     The specific YRBS questionnaire topics and file locations are listed
     below:

                 Topic                                    File location

     1.  Injury risks, including physical fights
         and weapons use                                     336-346
     2.  Cigarette smoking and chewing tobacco/snuff         347-356
     3.  Alcohol and illegal drug use                         357-372
     4.  AIDS/HIV education; drug use risks                   373-376
     5.  Diet and nutrition                                   377-391
     6.  Physical activities                                  392-402
     7.  Away from home stays                                 403-411
     8.  Sexual intercourse (sample youth 14 years or older)  412-420

     The YRBS file is structured in the following way:

     a.  The NHIS person record from the core questionnaire     1-200
     b.  Weight fields                                        201-212
     c.  YRBS health behaviors and variables                  336-424

     'Not ascertained' codes (code 8) have been assigned to those YRBS file
     locations where information is either missing or responses given to
     related questions were inconsistent:  i.e., the sample youth left an
     answer category blank or the sample youth gave answers to two or more
     questions which contradicted one another.  (For example, Q. 22 "How old
     were you when you had your first drink of alcohol other than a few sips?"
     answer box marked- 17 years or older; and Q. 23 "During your life, on
     how days have you had at least one drink of alcohol?" answer box marked-
     this question does not apply to me because I have not done this during
     my life.)  For a few items, responses of "don't know" were also coded 8.

 4.  Weights and variances

     Since the NHIS uses a multistage sample design to represent the civilian,
     non-institutional population of the United States, weights must be used to
     make accurate national estimates based on data from the National Health
     Interview Survey.  Two weights are included on the Youth Risk Behavior
     Survey file:

     a.  The Final Annual Basic Weight (location 207-212), calculated for each
         interviewed YRBS sample youth, is the weight that will be used in most
         analyses of the Youth Risk Behavior Survey 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 YRBS Final Annual Basic Weight differs from that calculated for the
         CORE data file in that the YRBS sample was re-weighted to account for
         nonresponse and the selection of only one in-school youth per family
         and up to two out-of-school youth per family.

     b.  The Interim Annual 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 data file (loc.
         201-206).

     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 Interim Basic Weight (which is the weight prior to post-
     stratification), included on the Youth Risk Behavior Survey file is the
     full sample stratum identifier (loc. 179-181), the pseudo primary sampling
     unit (PSU) codes (loc. 187-189), and the type of PSU (loc. 185) to permit
     the analyst the capability of using such variance estimation procedures.
     These variables and weights are necessary for directly calculating sampling
     variances.


 5.  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 Annual Basic Weight

               =     Total number of events occurring in the population during
                     the data year, i.e., 1992.

         Example:  Number of bed days (loc. 100-101) x 26 x Final Annual Basic
         Weight (loc. 207-212) = total number of bed days reported for the
         population in 1992.

     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 Annual Basic
               Weight

               =     Total number of acute incidence conditions occurring in
                     the population during 1992.

               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 Annual 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 Annual Basic Weight

               =      Total number of days of hospitalization occurring in the
                      population in one year.

         Note:  On this file, "population" refers to all youth 12-21 years of
         age at the time of the 1992 National Health Interview Survey.

 6.  Calculation of rates for events and conditions

     The number of events or conditions estimated for the population, as
     described in item 8 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.)

     Data on hospital episodes and days, based on a 12-month recall are in
     locations 122-131.  The Final Annual 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.

 7.  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 (1993).  Data File
          Documentation, National Health Interview Survey of Youth Risk
          Behavior, 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 initia
     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.

       DATA USE AGREEMENT - The Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 242m(d))
 provides that the data collected by the National Center for Health Statistics
 (NCHS) may be used only for the purpose for which they were obtained; any
 effort to determine the identity of any reported cases, or to use the informa-
 tion for any purpose other than for health statistical reporting and analysis,
 would violate this statutory restriction and the conditions of the data use
 agreement.  NCHS does all it can to assure that the identity of data subjects
 cannot be disclosed; all direct identifiers, as well as characteristics that
 might lead to identifications, are omitted from the data set.  Nevertheless,
 it may be possible in rare instances, through complex analysis, and with
 outside information to ascertain from the data sets the identity of particular
 persons or establishments.  Considerable harm could ensue if this were done.

       Therefore, the undersigned gives the following assurances with respect to
 all NCHS data sets:

     I will not use nor permit others to use the data in these sets in anyway
     except for statistical reporting and analysis;
     I will not release nor permit others to release the data sets or any part
     of them to any person who is not a member of this organization, except with
     the approval of NCHS;
     I will not attempt to link nor permit others to attempt to link the data
     set with individually identifiable records from any other NCHS or non-NCHS
     data set.
     I will not attempt to use the data sets to learn the identity of any person
     or establishment included in any set; and
     If the identity of any person or establishment should be discovered
     inadvertently, then (a) no use will be made of this knowledge, (b) the
     Director of NCHS will be advised of the incident, (c) the information that
     would identify an individual or establishment will be safeguarded or
     destroyed as requested by NCHS, and (d) no one else will be informed of the
     discovered identity.

       My signature indicates my agreement to comply with the above-stated
 statutorily-based requirements with the knowledge that deliberately making a
 false statement in any matter within the jurisdiction of any department or
 agency of the Federal Government violates 18 U.S.C. 1001 and is punishable by a
 fine of up to $10,000 or up to 5 years in prison.
