Description

For sample persons under 5 years old, HEADLIFTEV reports if the child has ever lifted head off the surface for a moment when lying on his or her stomach on a flat surface.

Child motor and social development variables should be combined with AGE, BIRTHMO (Month of birth), and INTERVWMO (Month of NHIS interview) to provide complete information about the child's developmental progress. For more information on how the child's specific age is relevant to this variable, please see HEADTURNEV.

For related variables, please use the IPUMS NHIS search function and drop-down menus.
