Codes and Frequencies
For all persons, GOTNONSSDIS indicates if, during the month prior to the interview (1990-1996) or in the last calendar year (1998 forward), the person received income from any disability pension other than Social Security or Railroad Retirement. In 1993, this question was only asked of persons who were interviewed in quarters 3 and 4.
From 1990 to 1996, GOTNONSSDIS is part of the Family Resources supplement that provides information on individuals' health benefits, amount of coverage and income received from employment, welfare benefits, public assistance, and savings. Starting in 1998, this variable is part of the core person questionnaires.
Questions in the Family Resources supplement are different from those in the core survey in terms of the content and the treatment of missing data. Questions in the Family Resources were normally asked of the month prior to the interview while the core survey asked of the last calendar year. All missing data in the Family Resources supplement were imputed by NHIS. Users can refer to the imputation flag variable GOTNONSSDISFL to identify persons with imputed data.
