For sample adults, SOCHOWELL reports the respondent's assessment of how well she/he carries out her/his usual social activities and roles. The question further specifies that "[t]his includes activities at home, at work, and in your community, and responsibilities as a parent, child, spouse, employee, friend, etc."

SOCHOWELL was first introduced in 2010 as part of the Cancer Control supplement, which asks questions about diet and nutrition, physical activity, tobacco, cancer screening, genetic testing, family history, and survivorship.
