Description

For persons aged 18+ who were diagnosed with polio, POLBEGANMO reports the month when polio started.

Users should combine POLBEGANMO with information in POLBEGANYR, which reports the year when polio started.

This variable is part of the Polio supplement in 1994-1995, which collected additional information on the symptoms and impact of the illness at the time of initial diagnosis of polio and at various times after the diagnosis. This includes questions on periods of rehabilitation, post-polio syndrome, times when respondents felt they were at their "physical best", and other health problems experienced. Whenever possible, self-response by the polio survivor was required for this supplement.
