For sample adults who have felt off-balance or unsteady and have fallen during the past 5 years, FELARUNSTED indicates if any of the falls occurred just before or around the time person was feeling unsteady. 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.
