For sample adults who had never used meditation (RELMEDEV), RELNEVCOST identifies those who responded, "It costs too much" when asked, "Please tell me the reasons why you have never used meditation." Respondents could supply more than one reason for never having used meditation.

Other reasons for never using meditation are recorded in the following variables:

  • RELNEVHC (Health care worker said not to)

Although 16 alternative health modalities were covered in the 2007 alternative health supplement, only in the case of acupuncture (see ACUNEVCOST), chiropractic and osteopathic manipulation (see COMNEVCOST), meditation, and yoga (see YTQNEVCOST) were survey participants asked why they had never used the method.

For more information about the full range of variables related to meditation, including definitions, see RELMEDYR.


RELNEVCOST is only available in 2007.
