Codes and Frequencies
For persons whose policyholder of the second reported private insurance plan is on the family roster and the plan covers someone outside the roster (i.e. outside the household), HIP2EXSPOUT reports the person outside the family roster is a former spouse of the policy holder.
The family roster includes all household members related to the reference person.
Most households in the NHIS contain only one family. However, some households will contain more than one family. For the NHIS, a "family" is defined as all household members related to each other by blood, marriage, or adoption, including foster
relationships and unmarried (opposite or same sex) partners.
The NHIS provides data for the first two private insurance plans reported. Individuals with more than two private plans have a "2" reported for the variable HIPRIVGT2.
