Codes and Frequencies
For sample persons ages 40 and older who have heard of and had a digital rectal exam but did not report the month and year of their last exam, DRXNO reports a numerical response associated with a type of time period (DRXTP) that reports the length of time since the person's most recent digital rectal exam. Users should combine these two variables to determine the length of time since the person's last digital rectal exam.
