For sample children ages 5-17 who have ever attended school and are at least in the first grade, SCONFEV reports if anyone from the school has ever asked someone to come into school, not counting routine conferences, to talk about problems the sample child was having.

SCONFEV is part of the Child Health supplement, first released in 1981. This supplement includes a number of questions on child's schooling. For more information and related variables, please see GOSCHOOLEV, or use the IPUMS NHIS search function and drop-down menus.
