Codes and Frequencies
For all persons, CLIMCHRONIC1 reports the limitation of activity by chronic condition status. It is a recode variable and identifies whether at least one of the reported causal conditions is a chronic condition.
Limitation refers to a person's ability to only partially perform a specific activity, only perform the activity part of the time, or to not perform the activity. The activities are limited because of physical, mental or emotional problems. Short-term conditions (such as pregnancy or injury where full recovery is expected) should not be included as problems.
