Codes and Frequencies
For all sample adults, BALPUNEVEN indicates whether the person had difficulty walking on uneven surfaces in the last 12 months. The questionnaire included the instructions, "Do not include times when drinking alcohol." The questionnaire also instructed interviewers to mark "No" if the person reported they were unable to walk "for reasons OTHER than dizziness or balance...Examples include persons who are in a wheelchair, are deaf, blind, don't have a driver's license, etc."
The question for this variable was part of the Sample Adult Balance Supplement, sponsored by the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders.
