For sample adults with a repetitive strain injury (INJREPANY), INJREPSIG reports whether, in the past 3 months, they had any repetitive strain injuries serious enough to limit their usual activities for at least 24 hours.

Before the first question in the repetitive strain injury section, respondents were told:

[This] question is about repetitive strain injuries. By this, we mean injuries caused by repeating the same movement over an extended period. Examples include carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, or tendonitis.

INJREPSIG is collected as part of the rotating core NHIS questions on repetitive strain injuries, fielded for two consecutive years every three years. For other core repetitive strain injury and injury-related variables, please see INJANY.
