Codes and Frequencies
For persons who had at least one injury episode in the past 3 months, INJPLAPOOL reports the number of times a person was injured at a swimming pool.
INJPLAPOOL is a person-level variable and is derived from corresponding injury episode-level data. This variable describes the location at the time of injury.
INJPLAPOOL is part of a series of variables initiated in 1997 that systematically report persons' injuries and poisonings, the cause, what the person was doing while sustaining the injury or poisoning, and where she/he was at the time of the injury or poisoning. For related variables and additional information, please see the User note on Injuries and Poisonings or use the IPUMS NHIS search function and drop-down menus.
Prior to 2000, persons were asked about injuries and poisonings separately; in 2000, these categories were combined. Beginning in 2000, swimming pool was no longer offered as a response category for places where people could report being injured. The variable is only available for 1997 to 1999.
