For sample adults in 2002 and 2007, HOMEV reports whether the person had ever used homeopathic treatment. Those who answered affirmatively were asked whether they had used homeopathic treatment in the past 12 months (HOMYR). In 2007, information was also collected on the use of homeopathic treatment by sample children in the past year.

HOMEV is part of a series of variables from the 2002 and 2007 supplements on Complementary and Alternative Medicine. In those years, respondents were asked about their use of homeopathy and 15 other modalities of alternative medicine. For more information about the Alternative Health supplements, see ACUYR. For more information about the full range of variables related to homeopathy, including definitions, see HOMYR.


The question wording for HOMEV changed slightly between 2002 and 2007.

In 2002, respondents were asked, "Have you ever used homeopathic treatment for your own health?"
