For sample children 3 and over who have been given a diagnosis for a voice, swallowing, speech, or language problem, CVLDIAGVOC reports whether the child received a diagnosis for a voice problem.

Persons who answered affirmatively were then asked for the diagnosis or reason given; persons could report multiple causes. The causes for the voice problems are reported in the following variables:

: laryngitis

: head or neck injury

: allergies or airborne irritants

: tissue damage in throat

: laryngeal growths

: cancer in head, neck or throat

: neurological problem

: congenital malformation/birth defect

: gastroesophageal reflux

: prescription medication

: something else

According to the Field Representative's Manual, voice disorders are "a group of problems involving abnormal pitch, loudness, or quality of the sound produced by the larynx (voice box)."


There are no comparability issues with this variable.
