For all sample persons in 1979 and 1980, LAGOUTPERQR reports if, due to a disability or health problem, she/he receives or needs help from another person and/or uses special equipment when going outside. See the 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.
