description:
The purpose of the Health Interview Survey is to obtain information about the amount and distribution of illness, its effects in terms of disability and chronic impairments, and the kinds of health services people receive. There are six types of records in this year's survey, each in a separate data file. The variables in the Household file (Part 1) include type of living quarters, size of family, number of families in the household, presence of a telephone, number of unrelated individuals, and region. The Family file (Part 2) includes information on family size, sex, race, education, health status of family members, and total health expenses for the family. The Person file (Part 3) includes information on sex, age, race, marital status, Hispanic origin, education, veteran status, family income, family size, major activities, health status, activity limits, employment status, and industry and occupation. These variables are found in the Condition and Hospital Episode files as well. The Person file also supplies data on height, weight, bed days, doctor visits, hospital stays, years at residence, and region variables. The Condition file (Part 4) contains information for each reported health condition, with specifics on injury and accident reports. The Hospital Episode file (Part 5) provides information on medical conditions, hospital episodes, type of service, type of hospital ownership, date of admission and discharge, number of nights in hospital, and operations performed. The Health Expenditure file (Part 6) includes medical and health related expenses, such as hospital bills, medicine costs, dental bills, doctor bills, as well as insurance coverage and costs.
