Description

For sample adults who are of Hispanic origin, LANGSPANRD reports if the respondent indicated that she/he can read Spanish.

Comparability

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 IPUMS NHIS weights.
