Codes and Frequencies
For sample persons age 18 and over who worked for a private company or for the federal, state, or local government (in the past 2 weeks) and whose job involved motor vehicle travel, CARJOBSAF reports if their employer required them to use vehicle safety devices, such as seat belts, helmets, or other types of protection in the motor vehicle.
Respondents were instructed not to include when traveling to and from work.
CARJOBSAF was first included in the 1991 Health Promotion and Disease Prevention supplement and the 1993 Year 2000 supplement. For related variables, please use the IPUMS NHIS search function and drop-down menus.
Apart from in the universe, there are no comparability issues with this variable. Changes in survey design (e.g., quarters in which the supplement was collected) may affect raw frequencies, but do not affect comparability of the variable. As always, data users should use the prescribed IHIS weights.
