For sample persons ages 18 and over who have ever heard of AIDS, or reported the last time she/he saw, heard, or read something about AIDS, AINFHOSP reports if she/he mentioned a hospital, emergency room, or outpatient clinic as a source from which she/he gets most of her/his information about AIDS. Persons can mention more than one source of information about AIDS.

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.
