Codes and Frequencies
For sample adults and sample children who still have asthma (ASTHMASTIL) or who had an asthma episode/attack in the past 12 months (ASTHATAKYR), ASTHCHEN indicates whether a doctor or other health professional had ever advised them (or, in the case of sample children, had ever advised an adult family member on their behalf) to change things in their home, school, or work to improve their asthma. Response categories on the survey form included "yes," "no," and "was told no changes needed."
Other asthma-related questions were periodically included in the survey; see ASTHMAEV for a summary of these variables currently in the IPUMS NHIS.
