For most of the alternative health treatment modalities, the treatment of other 1 was reported for both 2002 and 2007. For one modality--healing rituals/sacraments--treatment of other 1 (and 73 other conditions) was reported in 2002 only. For two of the modalities--hypnosis and movement techniques--treatment of other 1 (and 115 other conditions) was included in 2007 only. (See HYPYR and MOVALEXYR for more information.) Analysts interested in the treatment of other 1 by alternative therapies other than healing rituals/sacraments should see PRARITYR for the full list of alternative medicine treatments, as well as for a summary of healing ritual-related questions and definitions.

Comparability

PRATOTH1 is only available for 2002. Survey participants were asked about their use of most of the alternative health modalities to treat other 1 in 2007, but they were not asked about using healing rituals/sacraments to other 1 or most other specific health conditions in 2007.
