Codes and Frequencies
For sample adults age 18 and over, this variable indicates if the respondent was ever told by a doctor or other health professional that they had any kind of chronic, or long-term liver condition. The question for this variable was asked following a series of questions on whether the respondent received certain vaccines for the flu, hepatitis, tetanus and shingles. A similar variable, (LIVERCONYR) was asked during the section of the interview on adult conditions. LIVERCONYR identifies sample adults who were diagnosed with "any kind of liver condition" during the past 12 months.
For 2000 forward, sample adults were separately asked if they ever had hepatitis (HEPATEV), an inflammation of the liver caused by a virus.
