Codes and Frequencies
For sample adults ages 18 and older who experience loss of vision or blacking out with symptoms of dizziness or a balance problem, BALWOVLOSS reports whether the respondent has vision loss or blackout only with the balance problem or whether she/he experiences vision loss or blackout regardless of her/his balance problem.
The question for this variable was first introduced in 2008 as part of the Sample Adult Balance Supplement, sponsored by the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders. For related variables, please use the IPUMS NHIS search function and drop-down menus.
