Codes and Frequencies

For persons who needed help for individual home care, CDCNIHC reports the raw ICD-9 codes for conditions causing the need for individual home care. IPUMS NHIS only edited the raw ICD-9 codes to eliminate string characters, but did not perform additional consistency checks on the variable CDCNIHC.

Users are strongly recommended to use the CDCNIHC2, an NCHS-recoded variable based on these ICD-9 codes which reports the generic condition group causing the need for individual home care.

Please use the IHIS drop down menu and search functions for related variables.
