For each injury or poisoning episode a person experienced in the past 3 months, IRWHAT2 reports the second activity the person was doing when the injury/poisoning episode occurred. Possible options include: driving or riding in a motor vehicle, working at a paid job, working around the house or yard, attending school, performing unpaid work (such as volunteering), sports and exercise, leisure activity (other than sports), sleeping, resting, eating, or drinking; cooking, being cared for (receiving hands-on care from another person), or some other activity.


Prior to 2000, injuries and poisonings were asked about separately. For 1998-1999 this variable refers to only injury episodes.
