Codes and Frequencies
For sample adults and sample children ages 1-17, DELAYDT indicates whether, in the past 12 months, they delayed getting dental care because of the cost. For related variables about access to dental care, please see DENTINT (interval since last dental visit) and UNMTNDDT (needed but couldn't afford dental care, past 12 months ).
The NHIS questionnaire was substantially redesigned in 2019 to introduce a different data collection structure and new content. For more information on changes in terminology, universes, and data collection methods beginning in 2019, please see the user note.
