For sample persons age 18 and older, AIDCARER indicates how likely the person thinks it is that a person will get AIDS, or the AIDS virus, from being cared for by a nurse, doctor, dentist, or other health-care worker who has the AIDS virus.

This variable is part of the NHIS supplement on AIDS knowledge and attitudes. For related variables, please use the IPUMS NHIS search function and drop-down menus.


Changes in survey design (e.g., quarters in which the supplement was collected) may affect raw frequencies, but do not affect comparability of the variable. As always, data users should use the prescribed IHIS weights.

  • 1993: Half of sample persons age 18+ in quarters 3 and 4 (excluded from Y2K supplement).
