For sample children ages 5-17 who have ever attended school and are at least in the first grade, NEDSPSCHOLH reports if the respondent thinks the sample child needs to attend special classes because of a disability or health problem.

NEDSPSCHOLH is part of the Child Health supplement, first released in 1981. This supplement includes a number of questions on child's schooling. For more information and related variables, please see GOSCHOOLEV, or use the IPUMS NHIS search function and drop-down menus.
