Codes and Frequencies
For sample adults who had a balance or dizziness problem in the past 12 months (BALDIZYR) or who had identified a most bothersome balance or dizziness problem (BALSBOTHER), BALTRIGVIS reports whether the balance problem was triggered by a visual problem such as double vision, or when the eyes "jerk," "bounce," move rapidly, or oscillate.
The questionnaire text states that if the person is unable to do this activity for reasons other than dizziness or balance, the response is recorded as "No." Examples of other reasons the person may be unable to do this activity include using a wheelchair to get around, deafness, blindness, no driver's license, etc.
This variable was part of the Sample Adult Balance Supplement, sponsored by the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders.
