For persons whose second private health insurance plan's policyholder is outside the family roster (lives outside the household), HIP2RELPOLICY indicates the person's relationship to the policyholder.

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. HIP2RELPOLICY therefore indicates that the related person lives outside.

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.


There are no comparability issues for HIP2RELPOLICY.
