For male sample adults aged 40 years or older who ever had a PSA test (PSAEV), PSA1AGEG reports the age interval when the respondent had their first PSA test.


The survey form from 2000 and 2005 directed interviewers to show respondent a flashcard with the following categories:

1. Under 40 years
2. 40-44
3. 45-49
4. 50-54
5. 55-59
6. 60-64
7. 65-69
8. 70 years or older

In 2000, 2005 and 2010, the survey form instructed interviewers to, "Read answer categories."

The survey layout document from 2000 noted that, "Analysts should note that a small number of men (n=15) reported an age interval greater than their current age."

Similarly, the survey layout document from 2005 noted that, "Analysts should note that this variable is not edited for reasonableness."

For more information, please see PSAEV.


PSA1AGEG is completely comparable across time.
