description:
The purpose of the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) 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. The 1989 Dental Health Supplement provides 93 variables from the core Person File (see NATIONAL HEALTH INTERVIEW SURVEY, 1989 [ICPSR 9583]) including sex, age, race, marital status, veteran status, education, income, industry and occupation codes, and limits on activity. It also contains summary variables from the Health Conditions, Doctor Visits, and Hospital Episode files of the 1989 NHIS. The 32 variables unique to this supplement relate to questions about visits to dentists, reasons for not using dental services, use of fluoride products and dental sealants, presence of teeth, and loss of productive time due to dental conditions.
