For sample adults who are of Hispanic origin, POPCSBORN reports the respondent's father's country or state of birth. Response categories include United States (other than Puerto Rico), Puerto Rico, Cuba, Mexico, or another country or state.


Changes in survey design (e.g., quarters in which the supplement 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.

  • 1992: Sample persons age 18+ in quarters 1 and 2 and in 2 weeks of quarter 3 who are of Hispanic origin.
