Codes and Frequencies
For persons under age 18 in the National Health Interview Survey-Disability Survey (NHIS-D) Phase I sample who were not in school because of age or illness, or receiving homeschooling for problems expected to last at least 12 months, or were in school or on vacation from school, DPEDUPLAN indicates whether the child now has an Individual Education Plan or an Individual Family Service Plan. An Individual Education Plan is a written plan for a child with special needs describing what that child will learn. An Individual Family Service Plan is a written plan of goals and services for young children with special needs and their families.
In 1994 and 1995, this variable is part of the Disability Supplement (NHIS-D) that collects information on disability. NHIS-D included two household interviews: in Phase I all members of sample families were screened for any indication of disability; in Phase II persons with any indication of disability were followed-up for additional information. Phase I includes sensory, communication, and mobility problems; health conditions; activities of daily living and independent activities of daily living; functional limitations; mental health; services and benefits; special health needs of children; early child development; education; relationship to respondent; and perceived disability. Phase II includes four Disability Followback Survey (DFS) questionnaires: one for children, one for adults, one for elderly persons (69 years of age and over) without any indication of disability (also called the Supplement on Aging or SOA; only in 1994), and one for persons with a history of polio.
