Respondents were first asked to identify the most bothersome dizziness symptom (BALSBOTHER). Interviewers then proceeded to ask, "Do any of the following usually cause or trigger your (Fill: most bothersome or only feeling)" and asked about a total of 13 possible triggers. The other 12 are listed below (all available for 2008 only):


  • Standing or being on your feet for a long time (BALTRIGSTAND)
  • Riding in a car, bus, airplane, boat, or train (BALTRIGTRANS)

In 2008, this variable was part of the Sample Adult Balance Supplement, which consisted of a total 205 questions (some of which were only asked based on a previous response).
