Description

HEPATEV identifies sample adults (and, in 1989, sample children) who ever had hepatitis. The question wording, "Have you ever had hepatitis?," did not specify that the condition had to be diagnosed by a doctor or other health professional.

Hepatitis, which was not defined in the survey documentation, is an inflammation of the liver caused by a viral infection.
