Codes and Frequencies
For sample females ages 40 and older who have had a breast physical exam in the past three years because of a health problem, BREXWHYFEED reports whether the health problem that led to the exam was complications related to breastfeeding. Other possible reasons included follow-up tests/treatment, soreness, swelling, lumps, pain, discharge, or an unrelated medical problem.
BREXWHYFEED was first introduced as part of a supplement on cancer control. For related variables, please use the IPUMS NHIS search function and drop-down menus.
