For all injury episodes that occurred during the past 3 months in which a person was a pedestrian and was struck by a vehicle, IRMVHIT reports the type of vehicle that struck the person.

IRMVHIT is an injury-level variable.

IRMVHIT 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.
