Codes and Frequencies
For persons who had at least one dental visit in the past two weeks, DENTPULL reports the number of visits in the past two weeks for tooth pulling/extractions.
This variable is asked as part of the Dental Care supplement. Information on tooth extractions was also collected in 1971 (see DENTEXTR.), but in quarters 1 and 2, extractions were not differentiated from other oral surgeries. Beginning in quarter 3 and in subsequent years, information on other oral surgeries is available in DENTSURG. For related variables or more information about this supplement, please use the IPUMS NHIS search function and drop-down menus or see DEN2WNO.
