Codes and Frequencies
For female sample persons or adults who ever had mammogram, MAMLWHERE reports the place where her most recent mammogram was done.
Please use the IPUMS NHIS drop down menu and search functions for related variables.
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 IHIS weights.
