For sample female adults aged 30 and older (40 and older in 2000), TAMOXIFN reports whether the respondent was currently taking Tamoxifen, also known as Nolvadex, at the time of the survey.

TAMOXIFN was first introduced in 2000 as part of a series of questions on adult cancer.


Changes in the universe affect comparability over time. In 2000, this question was asked of sample female adults age 40 and older. Beginning in 2005, it was asked of sample female adults age 30 and older. (See Universe Tab for details.) This variable is comparable for 2005-forward, but researchers should use caution in making comparisons between 2000 and later years.
