Codes and Frequencies
For sample persons or adults aged 18 and over who were ever told they had hypertension or high blood pressure, HYP2TIME reports if they were told they had high blood pressure or hypertension on two or more DIFFERENT visits.
This variable was first introduced in the 1985. Please use the IPUMS NHIS drop down menu and search functions for other related variables.
For years prior to 1997, apart from changes in the universe, this variable is mostly comparable. Changes in survey design (e.g., quarters in which the supplement was collected) may affect raw frequencies, but do not affect comparability of the variable. As always, data users should use the prescribed IHIS weights.
For 1997 forward, there are no comparability issues.
