For sample adults who had never used acupuncture (ACUEV), ACUNEVHC identifies those who responded, "A health care provider told me not to use it" when asked, "Please tell me the reasons why you have never used acupuncture." Respondents could supply more than one reason for never having used acupuncture.

Other reasons for never using acupuncture are recorded in the following variables:

Although 16 alternative health modalities were covered in the 2007 alternative health supplement, only in the case of acupuncture, chiropractic and osteopathic manipulation (see COMNEVCOST), meditation (see RELNEVCOST), and yoga (see YTQNEVCOST) were survey participants who had ever used a method questioned about why they had never used the method.

For more information about the full range of variables related acupuncture, including definitions, see ACUYR.


ACUNEVHC is only available in 2007.
