Codes and Frequencies
For sample adults and sample children between the ages of 4 and 17 in 2012, ACUBOOKP reports the amount paid for self-help books or other materials used to learn about acupuncture.
ACUBOOKP is part of a series of variables from the 2012 supplements on Complementary and Alternative Medicine. In that year, respondents were asked about their use of acupuncture and other modalities of alternative medicine. For more information about the Alternative Health supplements and the full range of variables related to acupuncture, see ACUYR.
Additional information about the use of acupuncture was collected for respondents who reported using acupuncture in the past 12 months, including variables on frequency and cost of use. Please use the IPUMS NHIS drop-down menus and search function to explore these variables.
