Codes and Frequencies
For sample persons aged 18 and over, HEALTH2 reports the person's health status: excellent, very good, good, fair, or poor.
Please use the IPUMS NHIS drop down menu and search functions for related variables.
Apart from changes in the universe, there are no comparability issues. Changes in survey design (e.g., quarters in which the supplement was collected) may affect raw frequencies, but do not affect comparability of the variable. As always, data users should use the prescribed IHIS weights.
