Codes and Frequencies
For female sample persons or sample adults who ever had a mammogram, MAMLTP reports the time unit (days, weeks, months, or years) since her most recent mammogram. MAMLTP should be used in conjunction with MAMLNO, which reports the corresponding number of time units.
Apart from changes in the universe, there are no comparability issues. Changes in survey design (e.g., quarters in which the information 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.
