Codes and Frequencies
For sample adults who have had a spinning or vertigo sensation AND have fallen during the past 5 years, FELARSPIN indicates if any of the falls occurred just before or around the time the person was had vertigo. 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.
