Description

BALWSINUS reports whether the person had sinus congestion around the same time as the dizziness problem. Please see the Universe tab for information on how the universe changes over time.

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

Comparability

Please see the Universe tab for information on how the universe for this variable changed over time. In 2008, this variable corresponds to the most bothersome dizziness symptom (BALSBOTHER). In 2016, the question refers more generally to whether the action usually happens around the same time as dizziness or balance problem(s); otherwise this variable is largely comparable over time.
