For sample children ages 5-17 who have ever been asked to have a non-routine school conference about problems the sample child was having, SCONFTIMNO reports the number of time units since the last non-routine conference. SCONFTIMNO should be used in conjunction with SCONFTIMTP, which reports the corresponding time unit stated by the respondent.

SCONFTIMNO 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.
