For sample adults ages 18 and over, HINFOTHER reports if the respondent mentioned any other health information sources other than books, doctors, family, friends, telephone hotlines, magazines, newspapers, radio, TV, or work.

HINFOTHER is part of the NHIS Cancer Control Supplement. For related variables and more information about this supplement, please use the IPUMS NHIS search function and drop-down menus.
