Codes and Frequencies
For sample adults in 2007 who had used homeopathic treatment during the past 12 months (HOMYR), HOMTP reports how often the respondent purchased homeopathic medicine.
Interviewers asked, "About how often do you buy homeopathic medicine?" Interviewers were instructed, "If necessary prompt with: how many times per day, per week, per month or per year do you buy herbal supplements? Enter '0' if respondent does not buy homeopathic medicine."
HOMNO reports a time period (e.g., per day, per week, per month, etc.). This variable must be interpreted in conjunction with HOMNO, which reports the number of times respondents had purchased homeopathic medicine corresponding to the time period reported in HOMTP.
