Description

For female sample persons or sample adults aged 35 and older in 1990 and aged 30 and older after 1990, who ever had a mammogram, MAMLY reports the main reason they had their most recent mammogram.

Comparability

Apart from changes in the universe and in the response categories, 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.
