Codes and Frequencies
For sample adults who have had a floating, spacey, or tilting sensation AND have fallen during the past 5 years, FELARFLOAT indicates if any of the falls occurred "just before or around the time [the person was] having a floating or spacey feeling?" A fall was defined as, "unexpectedly dropping to the floor or ground from a standing, walking or bending position."
The question for this variable occurred as part of the Sample Adult Balance Supplement, sponsored by the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders.
