For female sample adults, age 18 to 64, who had ever heard of HPV (HPVHEAR), HPVHADEV indicates whether the respondent was ever told by a doctor or other health professional that she had HPV.

The Field Representative's Manual for 2008 included the following information about HPV and the vaccination available to prevent it:

The Human papillomavirus (HPV) is a member of a family of viruses that can cause abnormal tissue growth (for example, genital warts) and other changes to cells. Infection with certain types of HPV increases the risk of developing cervical cancer. A vaccine is available to prevent the HPV infection and is called the cervical cancer vaccine, HPV shot, or Gardasil.

The Field Representative's Manual for 2010 included a similar statement, but also referred to the introduction of a second HPV vaccine, Cervarix.

Cervarix is the newest vaccine, which also prevents genital warts. [Cervarix and Gardasil] are now approved for use with men.

This information was not routinely shared with respondents.

For a full list of HPV-related variables, see HPVHEAR.
