For sample adults who had a balance or dizziness problem in the past 12 months (BALDIZYR), or who had at least one symptom of a balance or dizziness problem in the past 12 months (BALSYMPTNO), BALSBOTHERNO reports, in number of time units, about how often they experienced the most bothersome balance symptom they reported in BALSBOTHER in the last 12 months.

Users should combine BALSBOTHERNO with BALSBOTHERTP which reports time period for the number of units in BALSBOTHERNO, to get complete information on the amount of time the person experiences the balance symptom.

The question for this variable was part of the Sample Adult Balance Supplement, sponsored by the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders.
