Codes and Frequencies
For sample children ages 1-17 who have a usual bedtime, BEDTIMIN reports the minutes past the hour that the child usually goes to bed. Persons were asked to report the regular bed time of the child, rounded to the nearest quarter hour. BEDTIMIN should be used in conjunction with BEDTIMHR, which reports the hour for the bedtime and BEDTIMPM, which reports whether the bedtime is a.m. or p.m.
BEDTIMIN was first introduced as part of a supplement on child health. For related variables, please use the IPUMS NHIS search function and drop-down menus.
