For sample persons who, due to a disability or health problem, needs help getting in and out of bed and/or chairs and who receives help from another person with this activity, LABEDOFT reports the frequency with which she/he receives help. See Codes tab for response categories.

This variable is part of a series of variables related to the difficulty of doing various activities due to a physical/mental condition, the use of help from others to carry on such activities, and the number of years this difficulty has persisted. For related variables, please use the IPUMS NHIS search function and drop-down menus.


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.
